Hey hey everyone!
It’s time for an Inspirational Monday again!!
Today’s quote is very close to my heart, you can even say it’s kind of a motto for me! I’ve had my share of bad people in my life, people who took advantage of me and people who didn’t necessarily treat me the right way. And one of the things those who know me best say is that I always try to treat everyone nicely and more than that, I don’t engage into provocations and my friends sometimes don’t understand how I manage not to do it!
I know sometimes when someone calls us something or spreads a rumor (and trust me, I’ve had my share of them!!) we have that urge to do the same thing! I’ve felt that and at times I’ve even paid in the same coin, but instead of feeling better about myself, I ended up miserable and feel bad..Now, I’ve just chosen to be the bigger person, and it pays off!!
I’ve learned that it is best to just be polite. You don’t have to like someone, that doesn’t mean you should automatically go and treat them badly! That also doesn’t mean you should accept being disrespected!! If something does bother you, be it something someone said to your face, the way they act or a very nasty rumor, you should definitely go and talk to that person!!! But if it isn’t worth it, just let it go, and be polite!! You know, the saying “Smile, it kills those who don’t like you” is very true in my opinion!
Engaging into a fight, specially if you are not calm, will most probably just bring you problems afterwards! You’ll most likely say something you otherwise would not have said and you might even make a fool out of yourself…and worse, loose the respect of someone who might even care about you!
Nowadays I just choose to smile, be polite and always help (even if the person didn’t do it to me, who knows, maybe we’ll be friendly afterwards…) and it’s become one of my trade-marks!
So, be polite, but do not forget to be true to yourself!! If you do that, you’ll end up knowing who’s worth it and who’s not and I promise, some of those things that seem important today, you won’t probably remember in five years!!
