Do others' negative energy bring you down? Maybe it’s your coworkers, family members, or even friends you’ve grown apart from. If you’re like most humans out there, the answer is a resounding yes, yes I am. When you’re surrounded by negativity, it’s easy to absorb that energy and start to feel negative yourself. This can mess with your mindset and make you feel drained. And, as someone who is trying to live their best life ever, this (negativity) can be a huge pothole in your life.
