Negativity






Last night we went to some friends house. Nice time. There is one gal, who I like, but she's negative and bummed out all the time. We all have those times - if it goes on for months, then perhaps a trip to the doctor to rule out depression is in order.  No, this lady is just on a bummer all the time. It's her personality. Plus, she is an ultra-conservative, so every chance she gets, she brings politics or Christianity into the mix. I'm really uncomfortable with that. She is also into conspiracy theories...and lives for fake news. 

I strongly dislike the way things are today- where people are constantly viewing their lives through their political party-lines. Oh come on - Obama has nothing to do with our high electricity bills. Leave the man alone! She had her cataracts removed - I mentioned that's what I will have done after I turn 65 - when my Medicare kicks in. That's what my doctor advised me. Oh Lord, it opened up the whole Obamacare and how I probably won't even have Medicare by that time. Wow- good thing I am learning how to turn these people off, or Susie-Sunshine would have me bent over in stomach pain. 

I try and talk about other things, non-political or religious but she still wants to be negative.

I know I have had times in my life where I have been on the typical Debby-downer. Usually, when I get that way, I stay home. Or when I have those "People-Bug-Me" Moods. It doesn't matter who they are, or even what they say, when I get into one of those moods, it's best I don't even get out of bed.

Thankfully, I don't have too many of those, like I used to. 

I do miss the days when we could get together,  share intelligent conversation, and some good laughs!

  1. My electric bill last month was for $11.78. I also blame Obama, it shouldn't have been over $10.

  3. I find myself blogging less and reading fewer blogs thanks to too many 'Debby-downers.' I cannot even have a decent conversation with someone I have known for almost 40 years because she believes everything she reads on the internet. And since I have my own opinions, it could get ugly. Life gets harder and harder. And today they are protesting Columbus.

  4. You have to take these people with a grain of salt, they are just as bad and annoying as people who turn everything into something about themselves my sister is like that.

  5. I have a friend who always talks about people during the conversations, and it bothers me. I'm sure it's hard for you to be around your friend who's negative. I'm hoping that as she ages, she won't be so judgy (just made that word up haha).

  6. I have to admit I got carried away with politics this past election. But I have come back to Earth. Why are we all so crazy!

    I blame a lot of it on social media. We are so bombarded. I unfollowed everyone who talked politics whether I agreed with them or not. The relief was immediate.

    But I have not been a Debby downer on the social level. My weakness is I've always gotten along with men better than women. It's not because of having three brothers close in age to me. My mother and grandmother were this way too.
