Negative People

Page 4 of We've all run in to them. Everything is terrible and they can never find anything good to say. How do you hand them? Is it even worth it to engage them... 51 comments | 2963 Views | Go to page 1 →

    I have a friend who posts approximately every 5-10 minutes on Facebook, approximately every, no scratch that, EVERY day of the week. His posts always start with what the ailment of the moment is and how that moment's ailment is going to affect the remainder of his day/week/month/year/life/eternity........ What really blows me away about his posts is that after he rambles on for 3 or 4 paragraphs about the ailment of the moment, he always ends his posts with something like ".....but I'm not complaining... yada yada yada.......".

    I have a very simple rule. If you use the entire post to complain about something, that complaint is NOT negated by ending your post with "...but I'm not complaining...". I think it is a fair rule to live by.

    I don't care if the glass is half-full or half-empty.
    I'm just happy to have a glass. (Mary Englebreit)

    You forgot the group that asks: What glass?
