Some people need drama. If they can’t find any in the real world, they manufacture it right out of their imaginations.
There’s no making these kind of people happy, calm, or content.
“Give me drama or give me death” is their mantra. If you were to take away their reasons for complaining and criticizing, they would complain and then criticize you for that very fact.
Nothing is more dangerous to a person who wishes to live constructively and creatively than an energy vampire who thrives by stirring up unnecessary anxiety, fear, and paranoia.
Whatever you do, don’t let these people suck the positive energy out of you.
Protect yourself at all costs.
You can still love them without being like them. Empathize with their weaknesses, but don’t emulate their ways. They’ll never be inspired by you, if you’re too busy being influenced by them.
