    Unhappy, Self destructing/self sabotaging thoughts, the gateway to depression, hopelessness, always expecting the worst, mental poison, having a fear of being disappointed yet again so they've learned not to get excited.
    Haterade sippers can't stand to see other people happy.
    Debbie downers consider themselves to be "practical" or "realist".
    "All men of action are dreamers" - James Huneker
    Negative thinkers are "Dream Killers"

      Uh, I'm a realist with a capitol R. But I don't see myself as a negative person. I really believe that in order to fix a problem, you mush first correctly define the problem without bias. To some, that seems like a downer, but it isn't.

      L.A. Cargill, Being a "realist" is different from being "negative". A negative person is unable to (enjoy ANY moment) because they're always expecting or looking for something to go wrong. It's not in their nature to celebrate anything!

    The unconscious use of  painful, emotionally charged thoughts that diminish feelings of happiness and wellbeing. Most negative thinkers are on automatic pilot because no one has taught them how to use the mind. They have spontaneous likes and dislikes, and don't even know why. They don't know how to turn it off. They don't know that it is the cause of their anger, jealousy suffering and misery. They are ignorant of the laws of the mind. Then there is the conscious negative thinker. This person intentionally wants to harm people with negative thoughts, behaviors and attitudes. There are millions of people like this. They enjoy hurting people. The joke is, both types are utterly powerless. But only those who are awake know how to be free of them. When one is free of them, they just see foolish people who are destroying themselves. They may even laugh at them. The awakened ones never pay too much attention to them or think about them. In that way, the negativity remains where it belongs, within the negative person.

    'Tis is, alas, naught again always when once allies with never so,
    Endless amidst when never and is doest rest as bedfellows.
    Together as one of likelihood when joined, against when alone,
    No matter of power when two always greater, shall we dance?
