1. Your Friends And Family Constantly Tell You To Cheer Up And To Look At The Bright Side Of Things
If you have heard this more than once, then the chances are that you are a pessimist – and nobody likes a pessimist who only anticipates the bad and undesireable outcomes in life! Negative people and whiners tend to drain other people’s energy, and nobody really wants to put up with that. As a matter of fact, this is a guaranteed way to push your friends away, for good.
If you are always grumpy and you constantly complain about how miserable your life is, then you should consider doing something about it instead of just putting it out there and projecting your negativity onto other people’s lives. Everybody is fighting a hard battle that you know nothing about – just because those around you do not constantly tell you what they are going through in their personal life, it does not mean they are living in a fairytale.
2. Your Co-Workers Tell You That You Are Very Patronizing
Being condescending and superior is undoubtedly one of the most distasteful and annoying personality traits a human being can have these days. Everybody should be treated equally and with dignity, and if you exude superiority through every pore, then the chances are that everybody at the office (and at home too, for that matter) secretly hates you. Sometimes, people are being condescending without even realizing it – if you think this may be your case as well, then make sure to always keep an open mind and to listen to what those around you have to say about you. You might actually learn something that may help you become a better person!
This character flaw actually goes hand in hand with yet another extremely annoying and bothersome personality trait – arrogance. Being self-confident and knowing what you bring to the table is one thing, but if you are constantly arrogant and self-centered, that is certainly very off-putting for most people. If you are being arrogant and you feel that your friends have slowly started to distance themselves from you, then the chances are that they’re silently telling themselves: “Good riddance!”.
