These Signs Prove That You Are Too Negative

You only have one perspective: your own

A good sign you are too negative is that every comment you hear gets mentally run through a filter in which you ask, “what’s that say about me?”

Erin Wathen, of EW Wellness Solutions, LLC, gives this example: “The summer college intern makes an innocent comment about the morning commute being a nightmare this morning. You snap at them, because in your mind, you have been commuting into the city longer than they have been alive, and they have no idea what it is to truly work, or what it feels like to have to make up for lost time due to traffic.”

She says that this “highlights how your mind is keeping score of past perceived slights, even against the weather or the local transit authority.”
