With the unfortunate truth that is some people just cannot find any means to be positive whatsoever, do not despair. Your positivism is more than valid when it comes to these circumstances. Even if it’s a negative family member or friend, there’s a lot to take into consideration as to how you want to live your life with that person or people.

Here are 6 reminders on how you can stay positive even around excessively negative people.
