You can’t stop trying to control everything.
Some people are just controlling. They worry about the outcome of every little event in life. This is an incredibly toxic behavior. You can’t control everything. Let go.
You’re a constant downer.
No one likes a Debbie Downer. Pessimism only sows seeds of doubt in the people around you. It clouds judgement and prevents an ideal future from coming true. Negative people never create positive things.
You dish it out but you can’t take it.
You might give someone a ribbing now and then but if they give it back, you take serious offense. Those around feel like they constantly have to walk on egg shells around you. It’s time to start rolling with the punches.
You don’t believe in yourself.
It’s good to challenge your own assumptions, it can help you improve upon your own ideas, and make you the best person you can be. But if you simply don’t believe in yourself, you’re bound to fail! A little self-confidence can go a long way!
You suck the life out of those around you.
It’s a tough thing to describe, but there are some people in this world who, for some reason or another, totally suck the life out of people. The things you say are unnerving and your behavior offends people. At the end of an evening with you, your friends feel like they need to go to bed.
You can’t be happy for those around you.
For negative people, no good news is every truly good news unless it’s their good news. Anytime something good happens to someone around you, do you tear them down? If you’re friend tells a good story, do you feel like you have to tell a better one? Learn to be happy for those around you and it will make you happier too!
