|How To Deal With Nasty People.
VISIT WEBSITE (learn more)
People who are rude and nasty to you, or don't respect you, don't know the truth about you.
They may just say things to hurt you. We are quick to believe they are justified in their abuse. Don't believe it.
Think to yourself: "He does not have a clue!"
Or "Shame, this poor person does not know what they are talking about or doing."
"I am priceless, not...."
The truth is that not everybody will like you. So what!!
Most nasty people have a problem, usually a self-image problem.
If a child is sick we treat it with special care. We say: "Ah, shame, I can excuse you because
Emotionally healthy people don’t do nasty, horrible things. Only people who are unwell in some
way, do. They must be emotionally or mentally sick. So if these people are also sick in a way,
then we can excuse them, even if they are rude to us.
Just think: "Shame, s/he’s a bit sick."
This does not make us better people (it’s not about being better), but it does help us to correctly interpret the disrespectful treatment and forgive the offence.
Very importantly: Don't take it personally. It is not about you or your “faults”. It is about the other person's immaturity. They have a problem. You don't have to find a solution for them. Excuse them as the poor sick person they obviously are.
NB. Tell someone about your negative experience. This is important for 2 reasons:
1. You need to get this negative experience out of your system. By telling someone all the
details of what happened, you get rid of it.
2. You also need someone to validate that it was not because of you that this happened, but
because the other person has a problem. He or she will be quick to recognize that this was
not because there is something wrong with you, but that you were a victim of a sick
We all face the poor people skills of others from time to time. Treat them with patience.
Be all you can be.
