The miserable one
Do you know someone who makes you feel sad, gloomy and utterly exhausted every time you meet? If your answer is yes, then you might be dealing with an energy vampire. “An energy vampire is somebody who literally zaps your energy dry,” Judith Orloff, MD, a psychiatrist at the University of California-Los Angeles Psychiatric Clinical Faculty. Either by constantly talking about their problems or focusing solely on the negative aspects in any situation, for these people the conversation is only about them and their misfortunes in life.
Sometimes, miserable people are not even aware that they are so cynical and pessimistic until someone else points it out to them. Therefore, if you have a Debbie-Downer in your midst, an honest talk could help them understand every cloud has a silver lining.
