I don’t like to complain on here; but today I need to get something off my chest. I despise people who are always negative. People who are constantly putting others down and feeding off their reaction to make themselves feel better. I work with someone like that who is also involved in my personal life. She always has some negative dig about my relationship or my job.
I try so hard to be the bigger person and walk away, ignore her, or have a witty response to show she doesn’t get to me, but it doesn’t always work. Somedays it’s bad enough that it affects my relationship with my boyfriend because of the things she says, even if I know they’re false and she’s just trying to get a reaction from me.
How do you deal with people like this in your life? Especially when you can’t always avoid them based on work situations?
