HomeFriends Relationship QuestionsHow do I deal with friends who are always negative?
Roy Murray asked 2 months ago

I have a friend who is always complaining about everything and it's really getting on my nerves. Every time I see her, she's either moaning about her job or her love life or something else. It's like she's never happy with anything and it's really starting to affect my own mood. I don't want to stop being friends with her, but her negativity is really starting to wear me down.

Oh, that must be tough. A friend who is always negative can be really tough to deal with, especially if you're naturally a positive person. I think what you can do is to try and find some common ground with her. For example, if she's complaining about her job, try and relate to her by talking about a time when you hated your job. Or if she's unhappy with her love life, try and offer some advice or support. Just try and find some way to connect with her so that she doesn't feel so alone in her negativity.
