We are in last phase of ramadan and Eid is just 2 3 days away (depending on lunar calendar)
This month is already a test as we are fasting, this time there was a little 3 (cube) on it, thanks to pandemic.
I know everyone is running out of patience. But I see some people being unreasonably mean. There’s no background story, nothing at all and they suddenly throw something at the weakest person in the room just to cool down their own frustration a little.
Now to the apparently weakest person in the room, speak up!
Ask them what’s the matter or they will do this again and again untill this become a habit.
You are not the weakest person. You are kind. You are not an a******! You know hurting people is wrong.
All of this makes you a bigger better person. But don’t allow anyone to bully you just because you are nice.
As them politely first, in a soft but firm tone “why did you say/do that?” Or “what do you mean by that?” “Sorry, I didn’t hear/understand you”, in front of the same crowd.
80% of the times they will stop and realize they did something wrong and you are not their personal punching bag.
Do not laugh! Don’t let them make a joke of you.
Do not be catty either. Fight but stay put and stay graceful.
I have learned something, a soft but firm tone is a killer weapon against people who are trying to being you down.
At some point ignoring them is the best policy, especially when you probably will never see them again and they don’t know you. And you don’t have time and energy.
It’s better to move on, unless it’s taking a toll on your mental health. In that case, follow the suggestions above.
If you still feel restless about people being rude, talk to someone. It’s never a bad idea to talk to an understanding friend or anyone you are comfortable with.
You mind rules you. If something is stuck there, it will damage the whole system.
Don’t harbor negativity and let it me a festering wound.
