Malicious people are everywhere in this world and they’re quite obvious. They’re all around us. You can probably find one in your family too.
The true key to happiness is probably a different thing for everyone, but for me, it is just keeping your distance from people that mean you no good.
When I was younger I always wanted to clash with malicious people, whether it was in school or work, if there was a conflict I did all my best to come out as a winner. But as I grow older, I realize that it’s not worth it. Life is so much easier without dealing with these people.
Malicious people are everywhere, but some signs can help you recognize them.
It is not that hard to spot a malicious person. If you meet a new friend or a co-worker who acts aggressively towards everyone else, but you, there’s a good chance they will turn aggressive to you too. If they are talking to you about other people behind their backs, they’re probably talking about you behind your back too. At first, they might be charming and friendly, but the signs will show sooner or later and don’t ignore them.
Be careful what you say to them
The most ideal thing to do would be to avoid malicious people in general, but sometimes you just can’t ignore them. That is the case when they are a family member or a co-worker that you spend a lot of time with. Luckily, there are things you can do and say to help you cope with that kind of behavior. If they want to put on a show, you should do the same thing as well. Prepare your lines and react according to their reactions. If you do this correctly, you will have an easier time reducing the impact they do on your life.
When you can’t stay away from them, just ignore them
The best thing you can do if you’re simply stuck with a malicious person is to just ignore them. When you can’t walk away because they’re close to you, just try to make their words and actions go right through without having any impact on you.
People like this, act this way just to get what they want in life
Most of the time they crave attention. So when they act mean towards you, just ignore them. When they do act nicely, try to point it out and give them your attention. Just remember that everyone can change, even malicious people. Everybody should be given a chance to change, and if you know such a person, help them achieve that change towards kindness.
