What would happen if you got rid of all the negative people in your life? The complainers, whiners, and manipulators. The abusers.
If you stopped associating with all those people who bring you grief, who would be left? What percentage of your life consists of negativity?
We know, intellectually, that negative people bring us down, but even so, we live, work, sleep and eat with them. We do our best to ignore them, to appease them, to understand them, but by the end of the day, we are tired of their drama.
