Sometimes People Amaze Me And Not Always In A Good Way

Sometimes People Amaze Me And Not Always In A Good Way

Have you ever wondered what makes people tick? What is in their DNA that makes them do the things they do? Is there something in their past that causes them to have to always keep the atmosphere around them in a state of confusion? Have they been hurt, lied to, or abused? Is this their way of putting up a wall around themselves shutting out the world?

It’s amazing to me that anyone can be so unkind and hurtful. There is a name for people like this – control freak. Yep, those two little words about sums it up! Most of the time when you run into someone like this (or have a run-in with them) you notice they are controlling. They have to be top-dog or nothing and will fight to the end to get that position and stay in it. They will lie, cheat, coerce, and bully to get what they want, not caring who or what they hurt through the course of it all.

The best thing to do when you are in this situation is to walk away. Throw your hands up and walk out the door, closing it behind you. Then…you may have to deal with the aftermath later.

I feel sorry for the ones that fall into this category. I feel sorry for their families and anyone that has to deal with them day-in and day-out. It has to be brutal.

I try to be kind, be helpful, to do what is expected of me and be there for others. Sometimes it really isn’t worth it.ย I can’t expect everyone to like me, but I try not to do anything to make them not.

Well…that’s about all I have to say on this subject because if I say anymore it may not be nice and believe me…that up there was as nice as it’s going to get!

Thanks for letting me rant!ย  ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  2. Don’t let negative people get to you. I find it’s best to just keep away from them at all costs! Hope you have a better day today. ๐Ÿ™‚
