I’m learning to block it out, but it’s difficult!  My own mother is the biggest Debbie Downer.  And her mother, my grandmother, is the most negative person ever!  If she’s not bitching she’s not breathing :/  I can’t just eliminate them from my life, and you can’t cut out your coworker either.

Sometimes I just let it roll off, other times I say something like “Can we change the subject?  I’m finding the negativity stifling.”

Or I try to say something positive, upbeat, or complimentary followed by a comment about how positive energy and attitudes are contagious!

Good luck.  Hopefully some other Bees will have suggestions as well, since I will need them too!
