Negative people will always try to drag you down to their level. Love them but rise above them. Don’t let them get to you. They’re just upset because the truth you know contradicts the lies they live. Here are some ways to deal with them.
1. Tanggalin ang mga negatibong tao sa buhay mo.
Rather than spend your time with negative people, focus on the positive people instead. Remember that your life is yours to lead, and it’s up to you on how you want it to be. It’s not healthy to spend too much time with people who drain you. Your time is precious, so spend it with people who have positive effects on you.
2. Maging matalino sa pakikipag-away.
Don’t engage every time someone irritates you. Not only will you be seen as argumentative, you’ll be welcoming the toxicity into your own life. Rather than argue, try to ignore any negative comments. Control your emotions and prevent the situation from escalating. Walk away from unnecessary conflict. You’ll be respected for taking the high road.
3. Maging responsible ka sa iyong mga reaksyon.
Whether the person is negative or not, ultimately you’re the one who is perceiving the person is negative. When you recognize that, actually the negativity is the product of your lens. Take responsibility for your perceptions. For every trait, you can interpret it in a positive and a negative manner. Learn to see the goodness of the person than the negative. It may be tough initially, but once you cultivate the skill, it becomes second nature.
4. Maghukay ng malalim pero manatili sa labas nito.
It’s always easier to offer someone compassion if you try to understand where they’re coming from. But that can’t completely justify bad behavior. If you show negative people you support their choice to behave badly, you give them no real incentive to make a change (which they may actually want deep down).
5. Itaas ng napakataas ang pagiging positibo.
Your happiness and wellbeing are too important to let anyone’s negative opinion or rude comments bring you down or affect how you view yourself. Remain positive and begin to limit your time with the negative individuals in your life. With any luck, your positivity will be repugnant to toxic people and they will gradually fall away naturally.
6. Gumawa ng kahit na anong bagay na makakapagpasaya sayo.
Dealing with negative people taxes and drains your energy. Therefore, whenever you’re forced to deal with such folk, take time afterward to recharge your emotional batteries. Go for a walk, listen to some music, read something inspirational.
