Be aware of who you are, and that will help you in your relationship with others.
I have many negative people in my life. It feels like the more I grow spiritually, the more people tell me I am not good enough or not up to standard (meaning their standards).
I know in my heart I am a good person, and I feel that even more after meditation. How can I love myself more, and how can I love the negative people around me without letting them drag me down?
Happiness comes from within. Other people cannot make you happy.
I sometimes get requests from people to help them move to the UK, because they are so unhappy where there are, for various reasons. For example, a man does not like his job in Jordan and sends his CV to me so that I can find him a job in England. Or a woman does not like the cultural constraints on her behavior and actions in Egypt and wants me to help her find an English boyfriend. Or a man in South Africa hears how happy his friends are in England, and decides to move after them and share their happiness.
The one thing that these people have in common is that they want other people to make them happy. They do not know yet that happiness comes from inside, and not from other people.
