Negativity - 2
Author: Barbara Goodhew


A negative, down person can bring everyone down.
A positive up person can bring everyone up.

What would you like to be known as a real downer
or a real upper.

My choice is to be an up person.

That should be everyones choice, no one wants to be
around a downer.

Love it!

This is great Barb. You are certainly an up person -- very positive in your thinking. Yes, people can drag you down to their mood level. Good write.
