Why I avoid nice people who have negative friends.
May 28, 2019
I have always known there are nice people who are +1’s, they are people who improve your life. Then there are also people who are -1’s, they are people who make your life worse.
I have a rule where I cut out -1’s from my life, and only keep +1’s in my life. Our time on this planet is limited, and I don’t see the point of wasting it with negative people who hold me back or make life harder for me than it has to be.
I also believe in energy and law of attraction, that bad people give out bad energy that attract bad things to them. And I also believe this energy is contagious – if we spend too much time with bad people, we take on some of their bad energy and have more bad luck.
This might sound superstitious and a little crazy to some of you, but I have read several religious and spiritual books that have caused me to believe this, as well as have a few experiences to support this theory of mine. Someday I might write a small book about this.
However, recently I started to notice there are some people who are +1’s (they help improve your life), but they like hanging out with -1’s (maybe because of low self-esteem or some other unknown factor). If I spend time with them, I have to spend time with the -1’s as well.
These +1’s become like 0’s or 0.5’s, because the benefit of being friends with them is reduced by the fact that being friends with them means you will also have to spend time with -1’s.
After a lot of deliberation, I realised I had to cut out the +1’s in my life that had negative friends, as they would bring the negative people into my space and reality. It also made me wonder how many others will cut out +1’s who are supportive, but are friends with the wrong people.
A big lesson I want to write about in a future book is that you should eliminate negative friends not only to improve your life, but also because there will be people like me who will avoid you if I see you have negative friends, as I don’t want to be a part of that mess.
So if you have low self-esteem and don’t think you are valuable enough to cut out negative friends, you need to remember there are those who will avoid you for having negative friends. You are not just getting rid of negative people for you, you are also doing it for the future friends you will make. As nobody has time to waste with negative people.
