This is a revised article that I posted back in Aug 2007.
How do you get rid of negativity in your life? One of my close friends, who is very negative himself told me people will only treat you as you will allow. So why do I allow it? Is it better to have no friends than friends that are negative?
Obviously I have chosen that it is better to have negative friends rather than no friends. I have recently been limiting my exposure to them or their exposure to me. If I don't want to talk to them I am not answering the phone or the door or whatever the case may be. It sounds simple, but I always felt they needed me if they were calling and I should respond. I am now taking care of me and protecting my feelings and the like. We can only do better if we try
Since the original post of this article I have successfully ejected the negativity from my life. Trust me it wasn't easy, but it was done. I am free and light and ready to fly....now if I break a wing and fall from flight it wasn't because of the naysayers holding me back. It'll be failure all on my own.
