4 Ways To Stop Absorbing Other People's Negative Energy
3. Just ignore it.
In the same way a parasite requires a host in order to live, a negative person needs someone to absorb their negativity. Otherwise, what's the point? When you ignore a negative person, you take the wind out of their sails. You can't tell them how they should be, but you can decide whether or not to pay attention.
4. Just know you can't make everyone happy.
If you've got a real asshole in your life talking smack and complaining non-stop, just remember that you can't make everyone happy. The negative energy wants to bring us down to a lower low, but by remembering that you can't make everyone happy, you keep your energy upbeat and positive.
