How to deal with negativity and negative self-talk

March 18, 2019


Negativity is something we all have had to deal with at some point in our life. Whether it’s negative self-talk, someone criticizing someone else for a reason or another, bad comments online or just a negative atmosphere, it never does any good. Negativity can ruin a day or create a downward spiral even. It’s not constructive, it doesn’t amount to anything but makes you feel like poo at the end of the day.

Unfortunately, it’s something that has been at the forefront of my mind this week. I’ve had to deal with a lot of negative talking in the past 10 days at work and it hasn’t made me feel good. A negative environment can be quite toxic. It takes away every positive vibe in your body and just leaves someone with bad thoughts and a uneasy feeling. Something I don’t like is when negativity is not expressed verbally. Feeling a bad vibe but not having the person put it into words is quite unsettling. You don’t know on which foot to stand, have no clear idea of what is wrong and therefore, cannot fix whatever is.

But negative talking spoken when the concerned party is not present is just pointless as well. If you need to let it out and just moan for a little bit, just go for it but don’t let it affect other people.

Here’s what I do when I have to deal with negative talking or situation

I am working on my negative self-talk. I realized a little while ago that my biggest issue when it comes to confidence and self-image is how I talk to myself. My inner monologue when I look at myself in a mirror or when it comes to things I want to do. People can lift you up and give you courage, but what will drive you is how you talk to yourself.

Ever since I realized that, I’ve been trying to work on it, to stop myself in my tracks when I do that. Sometimes it’s so rooted in me that it takes me a while to recognize that I’m having a negative self-talk.

Here are a few tips to stop yourself from being negative towards yourself:
