Words That Have Negative and Positive Connotations?

Answer

Communication between peers is an important part of life. However, what one person might believe is a negative word might actually be viewed as a positive by another person. For example, the stand alone adjective of the word oblivious conjures up thoughts of someone being lacking all memory, forgetful, of lacking conscious awareness, one who is unmindful, all negative connotations. But if used in the phrase of being oblivious of admiration, a person could view someone as being humble, thus turning a negative into a positive connotation of a simple word.
