Negative energy is infectious. Whatever you focus on expands both negative and positive. What people get out of being a victim is attention. What you get is injected with their negativity. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
The people who can always find something to complain about remind me of Joe Btfsplk, a comic character in the old Li’l Abner comic strip. He was a jinx and always traveled with a dark cloud over his head. Try not to join the Joe Btfsplk’s of the world under their cloud. Instead, reach for the sun. It’s much nicer there and you’ll be a lot healthier as a result.
