It's all perception. There's plenty of wonderful people out there. And if someone says you're negative, they are probably projecting. Which means they are the negative one. Not you. Self preservation is important.

Couldn't have said it better myself! Well done. That's the mantra of my life, "Be positive. You'll achieve unimaginable things." Unfortunately it's not that easy to be positive for some people, that's why it's said positive thinking can achieve great things. Well done.

Yea, it seems like those who tell you that you are negative or into psychoanalyzing you are the ones that don't have their lives all together. If you notice, those who are very positive are the ones that would tell you what's great about you than what's wrong with you.

Another one... let those who don’t appreciate us (and who are actually “negative” and “toxic”) go and .... let them go, it’s their loss

Thanks for the list.

I don't mind negative people though. I avoid those who willingly trigger me for self preservation.

Rejection is a trigger for many and people are negative through their experiences not because they are at fault. Spending time getting to know their story creates understanding and their friendship is true unlike so called "normal people."
