    'rub off on' vs 'affect'

    Hi!
    Couldn't you teach me the differences between these sentences.

    This negativity rubs off on me.
    This negativity affects me.

    This is called getting "a speck in your eye" where I come from.

    Usually it doesn't cause what would normally be called conjunctivitis (which is an infection), but mxreader is technically right in that, if your eye becomes red with signs of inflammation, it is technically a physical/traumatic conjunctivitis.
