How Should I Respond to the Person I Live With Who Gives Out Bad Vibes?
How should I respond to people who are negative and always send out bad vibes? I live with someone who is constantly worrying about things that do not exist. He passes judgments and is always looking at the negative side of things. I feel weighed down and try to avoid him. I pray for him to change and have suggested books to read only to be met with his denial that it is a problem. I feel my energy is always been used to counter act his negativism. I am beginning to feel defeated.Wallace's reply
Remember we cannot change another person - they have to want to change and grow. If they have that desire we can support and guide them - if they ask for it. When in relationship we share, however it is a mistake to force ourselves and our views onto others. Consider leaving and living somewhere else with people you find inspiring.
