Never Let the Negativity Get to You. There Are Going to Be a Lot of People You Have to Plow through, but as Long You Believe in Yourself, That’s All That Matters -Becky G

When dealing with our struggles, there are often people that will become aggravated and say things that are less than kind. Whether the words of negativity deal directly with what we struggle with or are just about life in general, we have to learn to kindly and calmly work through these negative feelings. Many times, when negative words are spoken, we feel the harsh blow right away. We begin to feel stressed and everything that we have grown to dislike about ourselves seems to be magnified.

There is no doubt that these negative feelings can be hard to ignore. How do you ignore words spoken so cruelly, especially when they are said by the ones you love? So many times, these negative feelings are brought on by those who are meant to care for us putting us down. It’s one thing to try to ignore the mean comments of strangers, but a completely different thing to ignore comments from those who we are close to.

What we have to keep in mind though, is that we are working hard to get through our fears and other issues. As long as we are trying our hardest to make progress, and as long as we know that we are good people with good intentions, we shouldn’t let others bring us down. I know what it’s like to hear negative underhanded comments and I know how hard it can be to challenge those negative words; to tell ourselves that we do not have to be products of these negative comments.

Reminding ourselves of our progress, of our talents, and of our strengths is the best way to overcome feelings of negativity and insecurity. While it may be tempting to always argue with those who are mean to us, the only thing that does is upset those around us and ourselves. We are too wonderful to constantly bring ourselves down. We need to constantly take steps to make progress and constantly feed ourselves positive words of encouragement!

About B.W. Ginsburg

For many years, I have struggled with anxiety and know how difficult it is to deal with something so seemingly limiting. I hope that through my writing I can help others realize that they are not alone in their struggles and that they can overcome their obstacles! I currently have blogs at www.gettingthroughanxiety.wordpress.com and www.restinpieceblog.wordpress.com - In addition, I am the author of the fantasy-horror novel, Rest in Piece and short story collection, Abstract Clarity. I also create and sell literary merchandise on teespring at bws-literary-closet and help co-design inspirational merchandise with a friend at travis-and-the-brain


  1. Beautifully worded and so appropriate for those facing criticism and unkind words. Thank you.

  2. Thanks for the comment! You’re very welcome!

  3. This almost feels like it was meant for me. I am going through so much right now and a lot of it is dealing with things alone for the fear of hearing negative things from others who don’t necessarily understand. So rather than put myself through all that mess of words and hurt I have decided to just go it alone (except for a therapist). Thank you so much for writing this!!

  4. I’m happy that I could help you in some way. I’m so sorry that you are struggling with negative comments from others. You can get through this though!

  5. I’ll be honest, there are some (very close) people in my life that I no longer share my troubles or concerns with. It doesn’t mean I don’t love them, it simply means that their tendency to say things that make me feel worse puts limits on what I can discuss with them. I wish things were different– but they aren’t – and I’m OK with my self-imposed, protective guidelines.

  6. Cindy,
    I’m sorry you feel the need to put limits on who you can talk to about your issues. Unfortunately, some people who don’t understand our struggles tend to only be able to offer negativity. Stay strong!

  7. I am one among many and approve of this message. 🙂

    Seriously great message for us all.

  8. Cindy has said what I am equally going through especially since I started opening up about my different mental challenges. Hmm, I can’t even say how close this person who silently invalidates or denies my issues is. She is all full of praises when I work almost superwoman , but when some panic, anxiety and co step in, she doesn’t even make like she read or heard what I said. But personally, I keep writing and saying out loud that I have my own moments too. If she doesn’t say unkind comments, she actually doesn’t even say anything which is just as bad. I have decided to take care of my mental wellbeing in those moments with or without her support. If I stay silent, I do myself no good and contribute to stigma.

  9. Marie, you have a great attitude towards those who are negative! Thank you for sharing your challenges with others; you’re doing a great thing! Thank you also, “one among many”. I wish you both all the best!

  10. Dealing with negative people is my biggest challenge. I just want peace and harmony in my life. Thank you for posting this. I wish you abundant joy and success in life.

  11. Thank you! I wish you the same.

  12. Love this! It is so hard when the negativity comes from family. Every single I have done has been preceded by a negative comment from my Mum. I have learnt that whenever she makes a negative comment I will strive to prove her wrong. It has worked so far! Either that, or I stop telling her.
    Good luck in life. Love your posts.

  13. Thanks, rookieavenger! I’m so sorry you have to deal with negative comments. I totally understand where you’re coming from. I wish you all the best!

  14. Love the blog! Excellent point you have brought up here on the human nature and daily life experiences we all face and feel.
