4 Steps to Deal with Negative Family Members
“How many times have I told you not to do this?”

“You don't understand! You don't have brains!”

“You are good for nothing.”

“What is this life transformation video you keep watching? How is Murtaza Badri's videos making your life better?”

Sounds familiar? Hahaha. These are negative people who keep yelling and keep telling you negative stuff about you and your life. They install this negative belief in your mind so much that you start doubting yourself, your own beliefs, abilities and skills. Then you give up or rebel - making your life miserable.

We get questions from our viewers on how to deal with negative family members, living with them day in and day out. How to stay positive and keep my mind positive against their pessimistic remarks.

  1. Do Not Acknowledge the Negativity

Whenever they rant and pass on the negativity to you, do not acknowledge. Just because they are saying it 100 times and are a person of authority in your life, it must be true! No!

What you don't want to do is, acknowledge the negative message and link it to the person. Don't tag the person as negative. Maybe the person himself is struggling with life. And the negative comments of the person has nothing to do with you.

Me telling you 100 times you are stupid, doesn't make you stupid.

So don't acknowledge it to be true and do not link it with the person. Because the person may care for you and only the communication is negative.

  1. Address The Behavior

When you want to deal with the negative behavior of the person. Do not attack, that's not the right way.

If the person says something negative, just say that you would appreciate it if there wasn't yelling and if there was a discussion. There's no need for disrespect or negativity here.

  1. Give Them More Love

When you are dealing with negative people, you being Alive and Fearless, have that positive energy and bring it out and show it to your negative people. For a bad word, give a good one, if they hit you, give them a hug.

If you constantly keep doing that, guess what happens. The person is nice, it's just their behavior. With the negative behavior, you give your positive behavior so the negative behavior does not stand a chance. When love hits the person, he will start loving you.

Disclaimer: Do not okay extreme physical, verbal and sexual abuse. Move out and do something about it.

Mindsets clash, different opinions are something we are looking at here.

The more love you give, a different person emerges. Negative people face a scarcity of love. Help that person and make the environment positive.

  1. Give A Nice Smile And Move On

Do not fuel the fire. Move on. Listen, smile, shake hands and go out your way.

I hope these help you deal with so called negative people in your life. Let me know if you like this video, give us a thumbs up and subscribe to our channel.
