Positivity is not just something that comes from within. A lot has to do with the people around you. If you have a lot of hypercritical friends, chances are that you’re turning into one as well.

Key here is to realize that you actually have a lot of influence in who is a part of your inner circle. Want more positivity in life? It sounds harsh, but taking a little distance from the negative people might be one of the best things you can do.
