It's Not Always About Chewing Gum

It's Not Always About Chewing Gum

I've never been one to gripe. To me, every day gives you just enough pleasure and just enough hassle to even things out. But I have to say that there are some people who live by their ability to make you feel small.

It's not hard. Push the right buttons and you can make anyone feel like a piece of crap, any time of day and on any given day of the week.

Ever wonder why? Ever wonder why some offhand remark and a weird glance from your boss or from a "friend" sends you down the road to self-doubt?

I believe it all comes down to self-image, especially with regards to the confidence of lack of confidence you have in yourself. I suspect that you are only vulnerable to the trolls of this world if you actually allow yourself to be their victim.

There is no doubt in my mind that some people are mean-spirited in their very essence, but you have a choice whether or not to participate in their game. If you choose to let them affect your world by responding to them, you choose to reinforce their behaviour. Choose to ignore them, and they will eventually move on to someone else.
