Chapter 5, Page 8, Book 21




Never stop being a good person because of bad people.

Jay Shetty


May 8th - Just because people are mean, doesn’t mean we should be that way



How people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours.

Wayne Dryer


We should never allow others to determine the way we act.  We each have a choice as to how we will act.

Other people cannot define your life or your tuture. Only you can do that. You are in charge of you.  Only you can decide on how you want to do things and only you can choose to be the better person.

We need to stop giving our power away to others.  When someone exhibit distructive , uncaring behavior, they are usually acting out from something else going on with them, not with you.  They say it’s about you but really about showing an outward display of inward pain.

Realize that your reactions and actions are your own, not theirs. Don’t fight back and give up the need to win.  Walk away and get on with your day.

Negetive behavior feels like it comes at you. Decide to take your own power back.  and be ready to turn their negative energy into your positive power.

When dealing with people, always remember that it’s not about changing them but about changing yourself.  

Mean people are everywhere, but we don’t need to reciprocate their rudeness. People will hurt you, but don’t use that as any excuse for your poor choices, use it as motivation to make the right ones.


Being kind to others has never been easy but it will get you much further than stooping down to their level. Responding with kindness even when you want to retaliate, calms you, and will defuse the situation so you can put it behind you. A little kindness can change someone’s day and maybe even their life.


In a perfect world, there would be no mean people. but until that blessed day arrives, we have to learn how to handle these individuals in a smart way. Don’t take it personally, keep cool and smile.



Never respond to rudeness.  When people are rude to you, they reveal who they are, not who you are.  Don’t take it personally be silent.
