Mean People . . . GRRRR

I recently learned something about mean people, and came to some conclusions about their role in my life.  My thought has always been that according to the “Golden Rule” the way you treat people is how you want to be treated.  I suppose this is a naive way to think, but it is how my thought process goes and I don’t see it changing.  I have accepted that karma is a real and true thing and hope to act accordingly.  I honestly think the good you put out into the world gets paid back to you and the bad you put out in the world also comes back somehow, someway.  I don’t think that I have vindictive or cruel intentions when I have failed to act as I know I should have, and of course like every human I am liable to make mistakes and say things and do things that can be mean and thoughtless, but never with real intention to do harm.  Although I am starting to believe there are some people who I don’t think feel quite the same way about this issue.   Sadly there are people that don’t have that filter and don’t truly care about their behavior and their treatment of others.  It is funny because I have been told on occasion that I am too nice.  I suppose I can’t help myself and don’t really think that giving back cruelty to those who have been cruel to me will serve any real purpose  Maybe that makes me a bit of a Pollyanna, but so be it, that is how I am.  I was recently confronted with a cruel person, and this cruelty was for no reason.  I find I can’t do more than just avoid this person and be, at the bare minimum, cordial to them.  Seeing more and more of this nature in people still does not change how I view things and my reactions to them, because I can never allow myself to be the bad guy.  I truly want to be the bigger person, not the bad guy for the sake of payback.

  1. I am like you in many ways Kristina. I too walk away from cruel and mean people because that is their joy and energy in life. They feed off of that negativity and they are just looking for someone to pester… Don't be the food for their stupidity 🙂 Great blog!!!
