Being around people who are constantly negative can be physically exhausting. The effort required to manage our energy levels when we are around them is often also mentally draining.
If we don’t protect ourselves from the energy of people who constantly whine, complain and are pessimistic, it will:
- Affect how we interact with others.
- Alter our attitude — in an unproductive way.
- Cause us to become pessimistic as well.
- Make it harder for us to focus and concentrate on what we want to get done.
It is no surprise that we become like the people we surround ourselves with.
