This drains energy like none other

Last night, a good friend had come home and the talk took a turn when we discussed about the shortcomings of a mutual friend. Both of us got really animated and by the time we were through with it (temporarily, of course), we realized that it was close to midnight. We were so deeply engrossed in criticizing the other person that we did not notice the passage of time.

After the person left, I was feeling very tired and heavy. It was not on account of the untimely hour but because the negative talk had drained my energy totally.

I have observed that when there is an exciting idea being discussed too, there is no inkling of the time spent but at the end I have felt very alive and vital.

I realized the impact of the saying “Discuss Ideas is most empowering, followed by discussing events but the least energizing is discussing about people”
