Just Letting Someone Be Negative

I have a friend who is struggling HARD with her career and personal life. I recognize that so many of her problems stem from mismanaging her mind (it’s actually been a great real life example for me to see a mismanaged mind from the outside– she chooses to stay in confusion rather than to take action, she chooses negative and unhelpful thoughts to think about herself and others, she believes outside people/ circumstances are responsible for the way she thinks). I’ve tried time and time again to introduce her to the concepts of life coaching and the podcast and she just refuses to give it a try. I used to be frustrated because she constantly came to me with her problems and I felt like it was a waste of my time if she wouldn’t work on herself. I’ve come to accept that she doesn’t need to change and I don’t need to be the one to help her. The problem I’m running into now is how to show up for someone who is so negative. I know it’s just the way I’m managing my own mind, but MAN! It is not pleasant to be around someone who is SO negative. I’m struggling with just letting her be negative without the feeling that she’s wasting my time.
