Hello, my darlings. Today I wanted to talk to you about dealing with negative and rude people. People that give us their opinion, even when we didn’t ask them. But somehow they feel obligated to tell us their opinion.
I can still remember when my son was little and my husband relative came to visit. In the first few seconds, she managed to insults everything about me. From my weight, my looks, my hair color, hairstyle, I mean everything. I was speechless, and all I manage to say was, it’s nice to see you too. I mean, no hello, no how are you, just straight-up insults. I mean, who the f… ask for your opinion, Karen. I know I didn’t. And the same thing happened recently. I know I’ve gained a few pounds during isolation, but who didn’t. I have a mirror, I know. And that got me thinking, whatever happened to common courtesy. And keeping your thoughts to yourself. You don’t need to say everything that comes to your mind. And there is a difference between being honest and being just rude. You don’t know what the other person is going through at that moment. You don’t know what demons she is battelling in her head, so instead of commenting on her looks, try alto say something nice, or if you don’t have anything nice to say, just don’t say anything. It’s that simple.
So, the next time you want to comment on something or give someone an „advice“, stop and think these three things: 1.is it dessert, 2. Is hurtful, 3. How will that make the other person feel? Think about that.
