Don’t let negativity cause you stress
Negative people carry stress and, sometimes unwittingly, pass this stress on through negative comments. If such a comment then plays on your mind, it can bring you down. However, a good technique for not allowing this to happen is to transpose the comment onto a mental picture of your gravestone and see if it’s likely to remain there. Put alongside positive comments regularly received from family, friends and colleagues, you may find that although upsetting today, when viewed in the bigger picture, the negative comment shrivels to its deserved level of insignificance.
