We have all been in nasty situations where for some crazy or self centred reasons, people intentionally or unintentionally just want to get on your nerves. They irritate and annoy you so bad you are tempted to react, attack or retaliate. In the heat of the provocation, it seems as though everybody expects you to be civilised and walk away. They stare at you or talk to you in such a way they suggest you should just be the bigger person and let it go.
It is good and very honourable to walk away from toxic people and situations that tends to want to force out the hot side of you. Sometimes no matter how much you try to avoid it, people will just search out your last goddamn nerve and yank it off. They don’t just stop there, they stand in from of you and tell you to do your worst.
When you look at the situation, the aggressor, thier ignorance and how desperate they want to drag you to thier level, the most sensible thing to do is get hold of your anger and intelligently walk away. What you will loose fighting them would be rather greater than what you will gain beating them. Just breath deep, suck it all in and take a walk, they are not worth it.
However, we are all humans and have limits, We can only suck in as much. Besides some people don’t just know when to stop. Just because you let it pass anytime they get stupid, they take you for a weakling and come at you anytime they get the chance. Sometimes you need to just forget everything, throw away the “bigger person” and put them right were they belong. You can’t always accumulate it all in, you will loose yourself at some point and become broken.
This is in no way trying to preach violence or destruction but sometimes you need to prove a point for people and situations to back off. This is especially if they are getting pleasure from provoking you. If you find out however that they just want to see what your reaction would be if you are pushed. By all means, you should avoid giving them the satisfaction of seeing that, It will make you more predictable.
Sometimes you have to be the bigger and more matured person and walk away. Show them that you are greater than it all. Sometimes too, you have to take charge of situations decisively, show them who they are dealing with, put an end to it once and for all and put limits to the negativity you can tolerate. Do not get pulled down by accumulated stress caused by the stupidity of others, blow off and release some, you will get lighter. Besides there is enough stress already in the environment to go round.
