I feel like I’ve become a sponge for negativity. Whatever I do, I upset someone, and they unload that onto me. I can only listen to what they say. I can’t defend my position because I’m not 100% sure about my decisions, whichever option I go with.

So I spend all my time fretting about it, and not wanting to answer the phone or check emails, because no doubt there is more negativity.

There are still positive comments and people saying thank you. But somehow these are always drowned out by the negative. I guess those with the issues are those who shout loudest.


  1. As some dodgy politician (if you can imagine such a thing) once said: Don’t let the ba****ds grind you down. Keep happy.

  2. Some of us just attract this, its because we have an empathy with the world. You listen, you care, you absorb – what becomes water of a ducks back to many can actually become a drain on people like you – and me! Still better to be sensitive and an emotional sponge than a don’t give a —- kind of person! Stop the world and get off to put it in perspective. N
