I know this is very unrelated, but I need to vent this out… I’ve been doing so much better as far as stress control, and since going raw my attitude has changed completely about everything, I’m a lot more cheerful and happy and positive and I’m sure a lot better to be around! However, it is still difficult to stay so when everyone around you is so… blah… First there’s work, where recently I found out everyone gossips about everyone… Including me… I was pretty naive I guess, didn’t think they would be talking about me as well, because they talk so much about everyone else… They say the same things about me… How I don’t do my work properly, I’m a screw up, I’m lazy… And it’s so unfair because I try soooo hard! And I thought I did so well… Second thing was my mother in law, who has decided now of all times to re-create the conflict that was between us over a year ago, and is making stupid accusations at me, upsetting my husband very much. Now I get very worked up (though I’m not as hurt as I normally would be, I know better, I’m wonderful, she’s the miserable one here) And have a lot of trouble calming myself down. How do you deal with negative people in your life?
