I don’t understand why some people are negative, all of the time. I can’t fathom being the kind of person that gives backhanded compliments, or speaks from two faces.
For some reason you will run into these types of people in your life. They can’t be bothered to give you positive feedback, only attempting to drag you down to their level. They get pleasure from watching you wither under their hate.
How do you deal with these people? How do you deal with someone that just wants to be an asshole/bitch/cunt/jerkwad?
I’m a firm believer of the”brush them off” method. This is typically easier if the person is a stranger.
It’s two steps, very simple. Step one, give them a bored look, filled with your utter contempt for their nonsense. Step two, realize the only way to get somewhere is to walk the journey. Realize that this asshole/cunt/bitch/twatwaffle will soon journey their out of your merry little life.
If you are in a relationship with a person acting like that, it’s a little more difficult. Talking to the other person is always a great place to start. However, sometimes even your loved ones want to make an ass of themselves. When this is the case, it is far better to move away from the abuse, than it is to suffer through it.
Admittedly, I write a lot of dark works. I focus on the negative to write a story, but that negativity only affects my characters. In my own thoughts, I’m smiling and happy, knowing I’m conquering my demons. Turning negatives to positives, another great skill you should try to master.
