Defeating Rudeness With Kindness

defeating rudeness with kindness

I like to think that I’m a pretty thoughtful and considerate person. I’m a Libra, which means I’m a people pleaser, diplomatic AND I DO NOT like conflict. I avoid it at all costs. I have to admit, though, I was pretty annoyed by these two people yelling at me (yeah they were pretty much yelling) and my first thought was to yell back.

It’s so easy to want to retaliate, right? Shout back and get angry and then start some crazy long drawn out altercation that, in reality, is so unnecessary. I don’t have time or energy for that kind of stuff.

Do you? Really? My advice is to just take the high road, be the better person, say something nice and let them move on.

Send them happy peaceful energy. They already have enough negative energy, they don’t need any more! Some people are just always angry and there isn’t much you’re going to do to change that. Not in the grocery store aisle anyway.
