I’m able to let go and can leave silence to be my reply to the odd person in my life who thinks they’re better than me or seems to want to put me in my place. I don’t care about them and their thoughts and their opinions don’t matter to me. I could go as far to say, they are dead to me.
Strong words from me, who loves people, loves chatting and loves helping people. But some nasty, selfish or controlling people, not many people, are simply not worth being a part of my life. 🙂 Some people, I simply say to myself, are not worth my energy, and not worth knowing.
There aren’t many people in my life I don’t have time for, I can probably count three in total. Three out of a whole heap of people.
I’ve got a strong tolerance level too. I had three older brothers and an older sister, so I was regularly teased when I was young and was even left in a lift in my pushchair (in Heathrow no less!) when one of my brothers got bored pushing my pushchair. 😉
When I come across people like the three I mentioned above, I try to do what I always do, and be nice and be me. But usually I find it’s pointless and they still go out for what they want, to try to put me in my place, or take advantage of my good friendly nature.
My answer to selfish bullies who think their way is the high way, that think they are better or more superior than others, is – silence. I know I’m better than them, and they don’t deserve to have me as a part of their life. So I cut them off and don’t let them in.
I’ll help people where I can, but I only help nice people. Sometimes when someone annoys you or tries to get a reaction, it’s best to say nothing. Rise above the bad gremlins who sometimes show their face in life, let go, appreciate what you have and who you are, and be the best you can be. Shove that in their face and see how they like it. 😛
Share your time, chat and super powers with those you like and love. And forget those who aren’t worth your time or your thoughts. 🙂
So the next time someone annoys you for simply being them or by being a bully or someone you don’t like. Smile, be grateful for you’re who you are and that you’re not like them. Rise above them, let go and continue to be you. They aren’t worth another one of your thoughts.
