We are in the process of selling our house and have been looking at other properties that would be more fitting for us. I visualize this house selling and us getting what we want in another house, but my partner keeps focusing on the negative aspects of the current neighborhood. I try to stop him from doing this and gently remind him that what he focuses on will suck even more of it in~ but he keeps going right back to it. It is driving me crazy and I am at the point that I would like to be able to block out his negativity without leaving him or ignoring him. I know I cannot change him. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated and I do believe once he is out of this environment he will be a lot better.
Don't let his comments control your focus anymore than you want what he is saying to control him. If he is a believer just remind him that these thoughts are a distraction. When I lived in a bad neighborhood I just focused on who ever bought my house as being fine there & I outlined what I wanted in my new house & released it all & it turned out all happening quickly & easily. Know that this will happen for you cause your worry about him is as bad as his worry about the details. He is a reflection of you so change you & he will change too.
Thanks everyone~ I did listen to the link and that was really major what that gal did by simply speaking what she wanted!
Just to follow up with everyone, we ended up getting a new agent and there is more activity. I have let go of the outcome and trying to go with the flow and be a lot less attached to control :)
Thank you all for your comments~ they are very helpful !
