Set a clear limit for how much more negativity you will take before you put your foot down.
When you find yourself wondering why you put up with all the negativity and other bad things life has sent your way, simply stop putting up with it. Set a limit for how much you will tolerate, and do not allow any extra negativity to enter your life.
Understand why you settle for less.
