There are (unfortunately) many people who are 'negative'.
This word comes from the root 'negate' which means to deny
and -- if you wish to be more thorough --
deny the existence of. Are YOU a negator? Are you surrounded by 'negators'?
Sadly, 'negators' are like cancer cells. They kill the healthy cells and hijack them, like vampires, like body-snatchers, they populate the current bloodstream until every YES becomes a NO.
I admit I have my own struggles with this but I'm working overtime to
become a YES rather than a NO.
TAXI drivers are notorious for being NO people. Start a conversation with
them and regardless of what you say, the first thing they say is 'no...' or 'but...'
Doesn't matter what you say... they'll disagree. They feed off of conflict and
contradiction like it is air!
Start watching how you interact with people.
You might be more of a negator than you think.
Hard to be happy when you're not saying YES to life.
