Like anything we need balance in life, we often get scared by negative talk, negative vibes, basically anything that is negative because we are so tunnel visioned on positivity, which isn’t a bad thing.
Just because one see’s negativity and talks about it doesn’t mean they are exactly negative, much like positivity, negativity has lessons to teach us, we just have to learn to silence our minds rather than try and put an answer or label to it, as a Buddhist teacher once said “Never let knowledge stand in the way of truth”
The truth is we need negativity to truly understand positivity and where it comes from, you just can’t simply deflect negativity and deny you were ever at a negative stage in your life as we have all been there.
Not accepting negativity in the world is like leaving a light constantly on until the globe blows, as I’ve learned we sometimes need to sit in the dark and walk our way to the light switch even if it takes ages to find it eventually you will.
We should be grateful for the fact we have negativity in our lives as its our greatest teacher regardless of what anyone says, try and understand the truth behind a negative person rather than just label them and also don’t be so quick to judge just because of a few what you perceive as negative words are spoken.
