Avoiding negative people

I have a very strong positive mental attitude. I am always looking for and finding things that are positive in a situation. I have found that being weighted down by people that are negative is a waste of time. I don’t have friends who are negative people. I don’t need it. I seek out people with positive energy. I am very wary of people that can’t deal with challenges because they fear losing. Life is too difficult as it is to be held back by heavy negative vibes.
