To think some people are so negative and other positive
Sorry10 · 28/09/2018 18:22
I recently changed jobs and I work with a few people 1 in particular very happy positive but not in a annoying way she makes work enjoyable.
It made me think previous jobs where colleagues so negative will complain about anything and anyone . for example if it rains 1 day our of 3 months of hot weather which it did this year they say 'that's it summer over now 'or will say 'summer has been rubbish we don't get any decent weather' . Also complain it's too cold ( its winter ) Another example to say that all men cheat ( she was a divorcee ) it was on the tip of my tongue to say 'your bitter ' .
To complain about not enough work / she's gets given more now it's too much work ( never happy )
Do you not think people like that bring you down ? or are they happy with the constant negativity ?
I'm not saying anything wrong with having a moan but it's the negative in everything literally if they win lottery would find someone negative about that .

YANBU, I know someone like that, it's mentally draining. I'm the opposite, I like to see the bright side but I honestly think some people are only happy if they're miserable if that makes any sense!

I worked with a total joy sponge so I'd be super happy to compensate. We drove eachother batshit.

Absolutely agree, negative people utterly drain me. It’s unpleasant and poor manners.

I have learned to stay out of the way. Some people drain you, other people enhance you. It really is okay to drop people. Of course if they are vulerable and in need, that is different. BUT if one is in company that leaves ( one) unhappy, step away. They don't notice.

I hate how they make you to feel daft for not agreeing with the negativity .
It's awkward when it's co workers I wouldn't choose to be friends with people like that .

Negative people are draining. It’s tedious when people only ever see the downside. I hate telling my mum anything because she’ll ‘well that’s nice but it’s a shame about ‘insert stupid minor negative’. It takes the shine off of everything.
