This is why moaners, procrastinators and perpetual pessimists are bad for you. Over time, they harm your health and well-being with too much stress.Would it be better to avoid them, altogether?
The more time you spend with them, the more your stress levels become higher! These people can be classed as super stressors!
The Perpetual Moaners
“Smile at the world and they smile back”, they say.
Well, guess what – the opposite happens when you’re around somebody who complains and moans all of the time.
I don’t mean people who are going through rough times and genuinely need to talk about their issues. I mean the people who complain about everyone and everything. They have no good thing to say about anyone or anything.

If they feel bad you need to hear it! They want to spread their unhappiness so that they’re not alone in their misery.
I know we all need someone to listen to us when we feel like unburdening ourselves sometimes. But not all of us are trained psychologists and psychiatrists to be able to deal with the endless “unburdening”.

I had the misfortune to live with someone like this sometime ago.
After a while, I felt I needed anti-depressants while this person was okay just so long as I continued to be the sounding-board.
“The Perpetual Pessimist”
Do you think the world is a bad place? The perpetual pessimist thinks nobody and nothing can be good. I think the world is a beautiful place. It’s just some people who make it seem like a bad place.
It’s just some people who make it seem like a bad place.No matter the perspective from which we look at the world and nature, it`s a pretty amazing place.

Take the human body for example. Think about how we are formed, the awesome way our organs all work together.
Ponder on the beauty and intricateness of the human body and mind.
Another reason the world is good – the beautiful and free gifts of nature.
If the rising and setting of the sun cost money to see, I wonder how many of us could afford this?
Can you imagine paying for oxygen? How long could you afford to sustain living? I generally try to avoid these people, as much as is humanly possible.
” The Procrastinating People”
They are the ones who complain endlessly about how bad their situations are. Yet they make no effort to change things.
Even when you are feeling happy, all you need to do is to spend a short time with them. You are guaranteed to become as morose and unhappy as they are.
The people we associate with do tend to affect our peace of mind and happiness.
I know you there are times and situations you can’t choose the people you spend time with. Take as an example work colleagues. But, to an extent, you do get to determine the type of persons that you spend time with!
Sure, it’s good to make the effort to get along with everyone. But sometimes it’s just futile – some people just bring out the worst in you.
Eventually, your health and well-being may begin to suffer due to the high stress they are causing you. Mine certainly did when I lived with “a constant moaner” – I developed depression!
Surround Yourself With People Who Motivate You!
Therefore, to maintain peace of mind and sanity, how about choosing to spend the least time possible with these types of people?
Instead, try to spend more time with the people who make you happy. Surround yourself with people who give you motivation. Have more contact with people who bring out the best in you.
Have more contact with people who bring out the best in you.
How do you cope with people, work colleagues or relatives, who you feel are causing you stress?
You’ve met them – The constant moaners, those who believe the world is hopelessly bad and the procrastinators who won’t take any step to change the things making them sick and unhappy.
I’m interested in your opinion of this article. Do you think I’m right or not? Do get in touch! 🙂
Have a great week!
