I really fucking hate negativity. Yeah, I know, I probably sound like such a hypocrite. You probably think I’m some sad sack of shit that just complains to the internet. But that’s MY negativity, I can deal with that because it’s my burden to carry. What I can’t stand is when people dump all their crap on me and expect me to hold it for them. I don’t do that to people, not in real life anyways. This place, the Internet, is just somewhere I can unload and rest. Even if it’s just for a little while.
Let me give you an example.
Someone in my life is currently dealing with some stressful insurance stuff. When they asked if I wanted to hear about it, I said no. I was already dealing with stressful shit of my own and wasn’t in a good place to handle it. They then called me selfish for trying to put up healthy boundaries and take care of my mental health.
Another time, I was trying to tell someone a story that was negative. I won’t deny that. But I was also trying to point out the positive way people dealt with it. But they just kept going back to the negative stuff.
These kinds of things happen to me so much, you wouldn’t believe it. Either someone is trying to throw their negativity into my life or they’re trying to drown out the good stuff with shit that they know will make me even more depressed.
Ugh. I need a bubble that physically repels all the bad shit people try to come at me with.
Anyway, that’s all for now.
