People Who Put You Down + Why They Do

Mindful Daze Blog

Do you ever encounter people in your life who never seem to be on your side with things? You feel like these people never support your thoughts, actions, dreams, or ideas. Never seeming to lift us up, but rather, pull us down. Never seeming to be for us, but rather, against us…The only reason this would occur though, is from someone who is not happy with their own life. Because if you think about it… when you are feeling your best and are truly feeling happy, the last thing you ever want to do is put someone else down in any way.When you are being the best version of yourself possible, you won’t feel the need to waste your time or energy bringing negativity into anyones life. Simply because you will feel so happy and content with your own life, that you will feel no need to put down anyone else’s. You will in fact feel more inclined to bring about positivity into someone else’s life.

Anyone who puts you down is simply negative energy that you don’t need in your life. Your true friends and the people you should surround yourself with are those who constantly support and uplift you no matter what. These are the people you should hold on to. These are the people that matter.

After all, it is your life. So you’re allowed to pick and choose what and who you want to be in it. These people that are in our lives, either negative or positive, influence our lives. Whether we are aware of it or not. So make your life the best it can be. And surround yourself with positive people. Because you don’t deserve anything less.

  • Nice thoughts. In Ireland we refer to someone who is constantly negative as a ‘Moriarty’, after the character in the movie ‘Kelly’s Heroes’ who was always bringing down the beatnik Donald Sutherland, aka Oddball, with his ‘negative waves.

  • I agree and I’ve totally done that before… but what about if you’re the person who’s supposed to turn their negativity around and be their positive influence!? 😀 Many a time I’ve heard from people who are mostly negative – oh, I did this because you do and I like it a lot / it made me feel better / doesn’t it look great etc. If we can channel our own positivity into others (even subconsciously) rather than discarding them totally then eventually our enthusiasm and positivity will rub off on them!? 😀

    • Yes I definitely agree with this. But if that person keeps being a negative entity in your life I say it’s not worth the fight. But yes, spread as much positivity and love as possible and be a good example by responding with love! Love this comment. Thank you for your insight! 🙂
