There are a lot of assholes in the world, everybody knows that. They can be in our friend groups, at work, at school, and sometimes we have them in our families.
The true key of happiness is probably debatable, but personally for me, it is staying away from assholes.
As a youngster I find it very difficult to deal with this type of individuals. Whenever there is a conflict at work, I was there to win it. But after some time, I have realized that life is so much better and happier without dealing with these people.
But how can you avoid them when they are everywhere?
See the signs.
Assholes are throwing out countless red flags, even early on when you get the opportunity to know them better. If you meet a new coworker or friend that’s aggressive towards others, know that this aggression can sometimes be pointed at you. If they are gossiping and talking behind other’s backs, they will probably do the same to you!
Be careful, because these people can be very charming. They seem really eager to please and friendly, but every coin has two sides. Don’t miss the red flags.
Know what to say.
Avoiding these people is the best thing that you can accomplish for your bliss throughout everyday life, except they can’t generally be disregarded. In some cases we work with them and are identified with them. Luckily, you can set yourself up for ordinary experiences by rehearsing how you react to various circumstances.
They are putting on an act, so you’d should do something very similar. Get familiar with your lines. Talk from an inside content. Also, by knowing your lines and realizing how to react to them, you’re removing the entirety of the breeze from their sails and alleviating their effect on your life.
If you can’t walk away from an asshole, just blow them off.
A definitive objective of managing an asshole you can’t dispose of is to remove the entirety of the gas from their tank, as it were. On the off chance that you can’t simply leave them, in case you’re left with them for good, perhaps the best thing you can do is basically quit thinking about what it is they’re stating and what it is they’re doing.
Assholes behave the way they do, in order to get more of what they want in their lives.
Most commonly, that’s attention. So you can just blow them off when they annoy you.
But, remember that everybody can change, so can they. Therefore you might want to help them or give them the opportunity if you can!
