I really don’t like to be around negative people because they start rubbing off on me.
They seem to constantly criticize others, and the irony is that the very thing they accuse others of, they are guilty of.
Was this the type of person Jesus was speaking about when He said, “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye” (Matt 7:5)?
I love what I call the “Three Amigos: edifying, exhorting, and encouraging.”
If I can’t say something nice about someone, then I don’t need to say anything at all.
This friend wasn’t really a friend at all because she would act like a friend to people but then accuse them behind their back, and she was probably doing the same thing to me.
