    If you want t obe great and successful, people say you should only surround yourself with positive friends and people.

    What they don't explain is, what do you do when the only people you're surrounded with are negative people and it's your family.

    What then?

    I have no friends, only family and they're all negative and would laugh at my ambitions in life.

    I second that. Proving your family wrong is one of the most satisfying feelings ever.

    just leave them and don't talk to them again, give them time to reflect on the error of their ways

    Ikr, especially when they see the negative side of things every single damn time.
