Negatively... LOL



My feelings would be hurt, but I'd also try and correct it, if it was true.



I don't like being abound people like that.

I'd have to think about why they said it and wonder if I really was being that. I can't stand people who act that way honestly, and sometimes people need to be called on it becasue we can all do it and not realize the little pitty pit we've dug for ourselves, lol

I don't consider myself a negative person at all. I just happen to be going through some drama and tough times that some "friends" can't deal with or be bothered by.

You can not be a negative person in general but have a "negative nancy" moment. Often we cloak ourselves in misery. I hate when people are negative and you try to help them and they just go on and on about how everything is horrible and nothing will ever fix it. No one wants to be around a person who is like that. . . I am not saying you are like that, I don't know you at all, lol.

I would seriously reflect on my attitude and make an effort to not be that way.

If you're just going through a rough patch and aren't normally like that I'd get new friends. That's not being very supportive. :?
