METAPHOR (EVERYWHERE, USA)
Allowing people to constantly dump their negativity onto you can and will reduce your life's operational efficiency.
Bird poop. Yes, you did read that right - the reflection upon this image is all caused by bird poop on the "power towers." See the darker line near the top of the tower? That coloration is not due to sunset but comes from the inclusion of more metal acting as a shield (the technical term is "anti-avian security") over the power lines. What would these lines need to be shielded from? Yep, you got it - bird poop. I had no idea until my friend, who owns this property, explained all of this to me. While you may call me crazy, just like I called him crazy, read this article for more information.
It is not just the presence of any bird droppings that causes the issue; however, a large accumulation of "streamers" (a nice way of saying bird poop) on the power lines creates the problem. The severity can go from minor (decreasing operational efficiency) to major (causing a reactor shutdown described in the article above).
Stop and think about how that relates to life. Allowing people to constantly dump their negativity onto you can and will reduce your life's operational efficiency. Some "negativity" is needed (e.g. constructive criticism) but an overabundance of the unnecessary kind is counterproductive. What are you going to do, right now, to insulate yourself from the constant negativity that could be coming your way? If you do not act to control that negativity flow, then a shutdown - whether emotional or physical, or social - is on the horizon.
