I am sure we’ve all come across people in our lives, the ones who are petty, mean and added to that, those who facilitate bad behaviour no matter what.
Those are the people who are selfish, only focused on themselves and their problems with their why me attitude, attempting to gain attention from those around them, who use manipulative behaviour, who will stop at nothing to paint themselves in a better light with the hope of making others around them look worse.
Although being open and honest about their behaviour can be difficult, particularly if their behaviour is centred towards us, I personally wouldn’t tell them. They’re consummate victims who are insecure, but that can never excuse what they do. Always justifying themselves, always excusing themselves. Their lives are simply about them.
When anyone gets to the stage of using petty and mean behaviour, they’ve already given up on themselves emotionally. Described by other people as angry, insecure, spiteful and bitter, they will stick at nothing to make other people’s lives a misery ready to bring other people down.
When anyone struggle’s emotionally, it is easy to elicit bad behaviour, without so much as a thought for anyone else, but it’s important in that situation, they take stock of their behaviour and begin to work on change.
Perhaps instead of them living in denial and making their problems about everyone else, those people should think about what they need to change.
