Negativity determines Being insofar as it situates it in the transcendental space which it has unfolded in order to permit Being to manifest itself there. The entity which appears in this primitive ontological field can never be equivalent to it. Such a field rather surpasses the entity on all sides. This surpassing is so radical that it is nothing more than the dialectical suppression of the entity.

Negative people can drag you down over time, and you might not even realise it until it's been happening for too long. But be brutally honest with yourself -- are there people in your life that mostly contribute negativity? If so, spend less time with them and see how you feel. If it's a marked improvement, then move on from them for good. If it's a work colleague or family member, and that's not possible, then look at other solutions: can you contribute some positivity to this person's life?

To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.

Being stubborn means resilience in the face of negativity. You'll begin to see that you have what the naysayers don't. Their criticisms and their judgments, are rooted in their own weakness, not yours. If you're stubborn enough, you will rise above the limitations they would seek to impose upon you.

Negativity sucks away energy. If part of the negativity stems from your attitude or perspective, commit yourself at the beginning of each day and each activity to find something positive in yourself and in others around you. If the people around you are negative and you can't change that, either remove yourself from the situation or view it simply as one obstacle you face in pursuing your own potential. Stay focused on your own goals and make the best of the situation.
