How do you all deal with negative people? I have a close friend who is negative all the time about everything! She always thinks of the worst case scenario. When people tell her to be more positive she blows up and says "why be positive when nothing but negative comes by way." In my opinion she kinda brings the negative on herself because she puts herself in situations that make it happen. Example: We had an ice storm in January which made a tree fall onto her ac unit. She got her insurance check to get it repaired but never got the work done. Cut to now where it's 100 degrees outside and humid. Well she has been trying to get someone to repair her unit because she has no air. Two separate repair men never came, so she has been sweltering in her home for two weeks now that the weather really kicked in. She has been whining, bi&*hing, and fussing about being so hot. I gave her two company names that do excellent work , but she wouldn't call them. If she would have gotten the work done back in January she wouldn't be in this situation! Don't get me wrong I myself can be negative at times, but not 24/7. She is just always like poor me nothing ever goes my way. I just want to say you have a job, a free home that her grandmother willed to her, your health, and friends. Why do you act this way?
