When people act mean, disgruntled, rude or bitchy, it is often because that’s how they have learned to handle their stress, insecurities and pain. We explained to our new friend that rather than judging that person, we can be the stronger ones and not point the finger, but instead, react positively. Plus, when the negatively behaving person doesn’t get the reaction they expect or desire, often you can see a change in their attitude and behavior.
Rather than doing the expected and reacting negatively to challenges that occur, we’re attempting to rewire our brains to do the exact opposite. Instead of adding fire to fire, we are figuring out that staying balanced, reacting positively and solution-based thinking is much more effective.
