Tips to handle negative people.
1. Don't take it personally whatever they say as they are actually suffering inside to come out with negative remarks.
2. You are in control of your life with Allah help. When others start to make you down, you have the power to turn it around and pick yourself back up
3. Praise them. If someone is negative chances they are even harder on themselves. Imagine how unhappy they are. Praise them and pray for them.
