How to deal with negative people around you?

by OfficialTEB

Our world has gone from being a society where people respect and appreciate one another to one where negativity thrives. The move of the collective consciousness towards normalizing negativity, is a reflection of how the media is shaping our reality…but more than that, it is a reflection of the inherent frustration in people’s lives.


People tend to focus on the negative the most, only when they are unhappy with what is going on in their internal world. Their internal conflict causes them to dislike even things where one would normally perceive beauty.

For example, imagine you’re out for a walk and each time you pass by someone you wish them a very good morning. While many will wish you back or would prefer to nod in response or ignore you, there will always be those who would say ‘oh, what’s so good about this morning?’

Now understand that their response to your good morning has nothing to do with who you are or your being. It is merely a reflection of their internal state of mind. And thus, you would not take it personally and go about your day.

It is the same in life. When people choose to arrive into your reality with a sense of negativity, it is a reflection of their state of being. How people perceive you, is a reflection of them and not a reflection of who you are.

Instead of stressing out about how people have a negative attitude towards the progress you’re making at being the best version of yourself, become so positive that it becomes contagious. When you vibrate at a very high frequency of positivity, then the negative vibes just cannot touch you. Even when you’re in a room full of people with a negative outlook, your own positivity will shield you from any unwanted external force.

It is like being inside a bubble of positivity, a bubble that cannot be popped. This bubble becomes a force field around you, a field that carries you through any situation and helps you deal with any kind of energy that people bring with them. It is only when you start living inside this force field of happiness and positivity, you understand that nothing can really touch you. You become this walking field of consciousness that just isn’t triggered at all by people’s negativity. You’re buzzing with your own positivity so much, that instead of being triggered, your positivity becomes contagious.

It is easy to be a positive reinforcement in someone’s life. Each morning when you wake up, you can think to yourself, “Today is a great day. Let’s just be better than we were yesterday” and then set out to achieve it.

There are so many people who are doing the complete opposite. Instead of lifting others up, they’re putting them down; instead of being happy, they’re jealous and instead of compassion, they show cruelty. In a world of such negativity, be that light in the end of the tunnel. Use your platform to spread good vibes out. Be contagious.

There will be times that you will hear things that you do not like, such as people trying to put you down or mock you or even the naysayers who don’t believe you will amount to anything just because they didn’t. There is no reason to let that affect you when it isn’t a reflection of who you are. Some people can only understand you from their level of consciousness.. If people do not add positivity to your force field, they shouldn’t belong in your circle.

The famous British comedian Ricky Gervais has joked about his views on how he deals with Twitter trolls. He says that he wouldn’t be bothered by a homeless guy hurling abuse at him from a trash can if he is walking down the street, then why should he be bothered by the abuse and negativity from someone on Twitter? Instead of being bothered, he uses their comments as content for his next joke. That is a powerful way to transmute negativity into positivity.

You can’t make everyone happy. Live life to the best of your abilities and stay in your bubble. Somewhere along the lines, if you make mistakes, that will be the learning curve which will tell you what not to do.

Some people are bitter and negative because something happened in life that took them in that direction. Their experiences make them lean towards negativity. But most people can not be negative for too long. The Universe always has a payoff for bad eventually. It can never be bad for too long. Your contagious positivity coming from inside your own force field will change your environment.

If you develop the wisdom to understand that, your reality will change. If you move in the highest of positive vibration with a bubble around you that is impenetrable to negativity, people around you will eventually follow suit…because that energy is contagious.

In time, you will realize that when you move ahead, you will move with such a high level of wisdom and understanding about everything that you will make other people automatically better.

The Indian mystic Yogi Bhajan has rightly said, “If you are willing to look at another person’s behavior toward you as a reflection of the state of their relationship with themselves rather than a statement about your value as a person, then you will, over a period of time cease to react at all.”


And to the people who harbor a negative outlook towards life, are struggling to stay positive but want to make a change, I can assure you that things can change, no matter how bad. Circumstances do not rule you. They do not define you or have any power over you. No matter who you are, you can change your life. Begin from where you are, and work towards bettering your outlook gradually. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
