Negative Boyfriend

Hi Brooke,

I know this has been asked before but I don’t remember in which month, so please offer some guidance again 🙂

My boyfriend (we don’t live together) complains every day, and making himself depressed. I can see that he has many many blessings (I assume you don’t need me to list them here), and I tried to point out a few of those to him, to encourage him to see life in a different perspective.

But he simply doesn’t see it.

I don’t want to be negative about his negativity. I love him, but I also don’t want to be in an intimate relationship with a negative person. I also don’t want to abandon him because he is depressed and complains about life.

What is your advice?
