We all know those people who use negativity as a way to put others down so they can attempt to lift themselves up. But the truth is that criticizing another will never bring you up! Calling someone dumb does not make you smarter, saying that someone is fat does not make you thinner, and so on. If someone is using these “put down” tactics, either towards you, or towards others around you, it is only an indication of how they feel about themselves. They need to make someone else seem small, so that they can seem big! We suggest steering clear of those people. Instead, we love to surround ourselves with people who are so high up on their positive cloud that, instead of kicking people off, they love it when others join them!
