Have you ever faced negative people before? Wait, who am I kidding? Of course you have! I know I have. Unless you live in a cocoon, all of us have probably encountered at least one or two negative person in our life. Negative people are everywhere, be it in our workplace, in social circles, or sometimes our family.
The challenge with dealing with negative people is that interactions with them tend to be draining. No matter what you say, they always have a negative opinion to offer. When something positive happens, they are quick to excuse that as a one-off or point out the black lining to the situation. When they have a problem, they prefer to victimize and complain, rather than work out a solution.

Generally they’re self-centered people and they’re somewhat manipulative,On some level they all know what they’re doing and they do it because it works.
Energy suckers can suck the wind from your sails in many ways:
1. Overly dramatic: creating large problems or drama when there is in fact very little offence.
2. Whiny: constantly complaining about everything that happens to them, or having a ‘why me?’ attitude
3. Negative: always seeing the bad things and never focusing on the good or practicing gratitude
4. Blaming: nothing is ever their fault and they are reluctant to take personal responsibility; they can often play the victim
5. Insecure: they feel sad, low or insecure about their lives and abilities, so they are constantly seeking affirmation from others
6. Jealous: feeling jealous or resentful of what you or other people have going on, so they may behave with spite or try to downplay your accomplishments
7. Dominant: always the center of attention and very outgoing, but never stops to listen, pay attention or ask how anyone else is doing
8. Gossipy: focusing on other people’s behaviour and constantly talking about (or judging) others
9. Needy: relying on others too much, not developing resourcefulness or self-sufficiency
10. Prone to giving guilt trips: using emotional manipulation to make you feel guilty so they can get what they want

This is why it’s crucial to set boundaries with energy vampires, so their negative impact on you is minimal.
1. Listen to your body

4. Take a break
Sometimes, a simple break from the person can help you to feel better equipped to deal with them,notice how different you feel when you’ve distanced yourself.
5. Help them get counseling
Many people who are always negative and discouraged need professional help. Because of being worn down by issues, they might not even be able to get help or realize they need it. You should, therefore, set to help them out by getting them help. Take them to a qualified therapist who will listen to them and give them advice
6. Know when to cut someone out completely
For better or worse, we can’t change people. However, we can change the way we interact with them.If you’ve tried to talk with them about their behavior and they aren’t receptive to feedback or lapse back into their old ways, then perhaps it’s time to re-evaluate your relationship with them.

10. Cleanse your aura
After encountering an energy vampire, don’t forget to re-energize and cleanse your energy. How to do this? Well, for starters, make sure you meditate and ask the universe for healing energy after the encounter. Next, you could burn some sage or your favorite incense to clear the air and lighten the energy of yourself and the room you’re in. Also, take care of your physical body. Get some sunlight, eat a light, healthy diet, bathe with Epsom salt, and most importantly, practice self-love every single day.

Recognize an energy sucker when you see one if you want to remain immune to their negativity. Once you know them, you will be careful in how you deal with them and preserve your relationship as you also shield yourself from the damaging energy. On the contrary, if you don’t identify them, you will find yourself becoming like them or slowly being sucked in their destructive cycle.
In the times we live in, energy, especially the positive kind, is a precious commodity. It’s not something you should willingly give up to those who would steal it. Instead, keep a positive attitude and surround yourself with positive people who leave you feeling upbeat and energized.
