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.
