Mean People

So often we encounter people in our lives that are just plain mean. I call it having a “short fuse”. Flipping someone off, telling someone off or just being rude seems to be too common today. People are often so angry, and for reasons you may not be able to see. As a matter of fact, most often it has nothing to do with you at all.

I don’t believe people just wake up in the morning that way. It’s a festering inside of trapped emotions. Perhaps they didn’t release those emotions when they had an opportunity to do so, therefore causing them to get stuck within.

So what do you do?? Step aside and get out of their way!

You can’t take it personal yet you can’t go through life allowing yourself to be emotionally attacked by others. Of course if it’s a stranger that is being rude, you can simply say “No Thank- you” and walk away. Allowing yourself to be around offensive people can be very toxic. Know when to distance yourself and allow those who are the perpetrators to hurl themselves into their own destiny. You need not be a target for their dysfunctional behavior. It’s almost like allowing yourself to be bullied. What is acceptable behavior to you? You choose who you want associate with and at some point you come to the realization that you might have to let go of people who have been a part of your life.

Let the behavior of others become a learning experience. Take the good and reward it, as it’s a gift. Discard the rest. This will help you to make conscious choices when engaging with others. By being kind, you can encourage others to do the same, and so it goes…

    Wonderful topic! Life is too short to be around negative people. Being negative is such a waste of energy. You can imagine what wonderful things they could do with that energy if it was used in a positive direction.

      Dear Sandy< You are so correct. Let this just serve as a gentle reminder to those are hurt by mean people and let this bring awareness to those who hurt others, and may not even realize that they are doing so. As always, I so appreciate your comments. Warmest Regards, Jill
