A negative person has always Negative things to say about other people.
And at times about themselves!
I don’t want to have anything to do with such person.
Hearing her negativities affects me.
It makes me feel bad for a while.
It wears me down.
As if it saps my energy for the day!
If it’s only about herself she likes to talk about, maybe I can endure it for a few minutes.
But if it’s about other people who are not around.
How to avoid a negative person then?
Tip #1. Do not even attempt to go near her.
Tip#2. If she comes near you, move away subtly.
Tip#3. If she was able to go near you and you can’t move away anymore, immediately start a topic which you know she doesn’t like.
Tip#4. Turn a deaf ear.
Tip#5.Present a poker face, so that she’ll lost interest and move away from you.
It works for me.
I hope it works for you too.
