50 Negative Energy Quotes That Will Help to Reflect on Your Life

Do you have a lot of negative energy in your life? Perhaps you’re looking for a bit of inspiration to get out of the dark hole that has taken residence in your mind?

In either case, these negative energy quotes might be just what you need to kick start your inspiration and give you the energy you need to keep pushing forward.

We have collected 50 of the best negative energy quotes, each one unique and speaking directly to the point, offering advice and outlook to help you look on the bright side, no matter what the situation you may find yourself in.

How to Use Negative Energy Quotes

Reading some of these negative energy quotes in itself will not accomplish much unless you pair that with a clear intention to change things going forward and to put that thought into action.

We personally found that quotes are much more powerful when you use them as a form of daily affirmation, so the thought gets gradually imprinted in your subconscious mind and will eventually replace all the negative and unhealthy thought patterns that have taken residence.

The key to making the most out of it is to find a quote that truly resonates with you on a deeper level and one that feels like it speaks directly to your situation.

Another popular way to leverage the power of negative energy quotes is to use them as printouts on your vision board, office table, kitchen board or as the background of your desktop or your phone.

That way, the quote is with you every day, and each glance reinforces the positive message you’re trying to adopt.

If you’re not sure where to start, experiment with a few methods over a few days or weeks to see which one sticks and works better for you. Remember – aim for improvement, not perfection!
