I’m probably a negative person to be avoided.
Maybe labelling someone as a negative person is a judgment?
“Let go of judgment”.

Thank you for sharing. I’m sure this will help some people here.

What makes you describe yourself as a negative person?

(Unrelated to you) I see nothing wrong with limiting time with negative people. It's important for self-preservation and peace of mind. Energy transmits regardless of whether it is positive or negative. I don't perceive that as judging. Simply stepping back from someone is not judging them or derailing their sense of peace.

Feel free to tell me more if you feel comfortable.

Peace.

I find it difficult to avoid myself, too!

"Positive" people don't want to hang out with me... and finding my tribe would probably be around the "doomed" ones too... that are the ones that can relate with my thoughts and sometimes, even make me feel better, idk

I didn't see anything on the list about "doomed" people. I wouldn't describe anyone as "doomed."

Absolutely true Silver.

Leave the body and my soul to be a part of thee
I do what it takes

Peace.
My “best friend” told me I am a negative person and that person became an abuser. Very much a bully.

I often find “positive people” don’t want to spend time with me.
I also step back from people sometimes.

Peace.

I like the quote “our planet is the mental institution of the universe”.
Maybe I’m one of the “doomed ones”.

I like the quote about our planet.. “positive” people often don’t want to hang out with me either. I also had a “friend” who said I was “a negative person” and then this “friend” (irl) became abusive. I wouldn’t call anyone the “doomed” ones
