We all have our fair share of negative people in our lives, our friends, family members, co workers, neighbors, kids, spouses, and romantic partners. Sometimes we can avoid these people and sometimes we are unfortunately stuck with them. It is a known fact that whoever you are surrounded by has a very big impact on your daily life. This is not only true physically it is also true on an energetic and spiritual level as well.
People who surround themselves with millionaires for example tend to eventually attract wealth and same goes for someone who is around a thief or a criminal the end result will be their traits and ideas transferring on to you in both positive and negative ways. This is why it is truly important to make very wise decisions as to who you associate yourself with and what type of environment you are surrounding yourself with.
It is easy to be negative and the vast majority of society chooses to just be down, dread life, complain, be miserable and blame everyone else for their short comings. When coming in contact with such a person the low vibration in their auric field (aura is the energy that surrounds our body and protects us) is enough to wipe out all your positive energy in minutes. This is why its very important to be protected against energy vampires who will suck all the positive energy out of you within minutes without you knowing what hit you the rest of your day, week or even month and cause you to make terrible decisions and not even knowing why.
Lets face it, we cant control negative people or change them but we can change ourselves to be protected, and for our own energy to attract only the highest vibration of people who don't drain us in any way. Energy is known to attract to itself similar energy that it gives out. For example if you are a giving, kindhearted, loving individual you will attract friends to yourself with very similar traits. There are of-course exceptions to this rule as with anything but for the most part most people will attract to themselves who they are because our aura vibrates at a certain energy and we attract to ourselves that same vibration of energy.
There are many toxic relationships where one person is amazing but the other is just the opposite, don't think for a moment that the universe made a mistake, just because the relationship exists it doesn't mean its meant to be. Many times there is one individual in the toxic relationship that has no idea how to be without the other person so they will put up with negativity for decades if they have to instead of leaving that person and starting fresh.
If you are surrounded by negative people and don't know what to do about it, I strongly recommend the following few things:
