Aloha Friday - Negative People!

An Island Life is hosting Aloha Friday. I thought it would be fun to participate. All you have to do is answer the question I ask by leaving a comment. Then click over to An Island Life and link up to Aloha Friday with your own question!

My Question:

How do you handle the negative people in your life? (or maybe you don't have any lol)

My Answer:

This seems like an obvious question lol I guess it really depends on the situation..and whom you are having trouble with. But for me I tend to keep a distance.

I ignore them. Or for better phrase lend a deaf ear to their negativity comments.
Here's my Aloha Friday link for you

I'm the SAME way! I stay away and my husband doesn't understand why I do that. BUT if I've been burned a few times-why keep going around them?

They frustrate me so I ignore them.

Let's just say, I have my days that I feel likme Eeyore. Being possitively pessimistic can open your eyes to the way others are. I typically walk away and move on in life.

I just ignore them as much as I can.. I had some people try to tell us that adotping our baby girl was a bad idea and it wasnt a bad idea to have it be open adoption.. I just try to prove them wrong as much as I can. And so far that is working!!

I really wanted to read everyone's answers because I have trouble with this also. I try to ignore people's negative comments and only acknowledge the positive ones.

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
