It's hard to visit negative people.
Even though you have problems too,you try to be happy and upbeat.
But you feel guilty for being happy.
No matter what you say or do can't make them happy.
When you start complaining and being negative they seem to like it.

Two negatives don't make a positive. no matter what.
With all the negativity in my life right now. try to stay positive,
very hard when I'm around negative people.

I was told once that positivity is stronger than negativity,

If two positive people are in a room with one negative person
before long the positive people become negative.
So who's the stronger?
