There are many things in this world of ours that will never be understood. One of those things is the way that people treat each other. I don’t understand how people can treat others so badly, not all of us do and I’m not saying saying that I’m perfect and always treat others well. I judge but I always try to understand why that person that I’m judging is acting the way they are. I don’t judge a lot but I feel that sometimes it’s impossible not to, there are some people who are just so negative and always complaining about their life, the world and pretty much everything that can be complained about. We all have known people like this, the ones that will go negative about any situation no matter how trivial it is. I don’t understand how people can see the negative like this. Instead of seeing a way to overcome what has happened, they will just complain about it and not try to resolve it. I confess, I do judge these people, I try not to and I guess that makes me negative in the same way that they are but you can’t always be that happy go lucky person. However I don’t hate them, I feel bad for them. I feel bad that they do not have the skills to be happy. They were never taught how to handle life or they just choose to be this way and that makes me what to show them. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t preach the word of God to anyone. This isn’t about what Jesus would do. It’s about what a I would do and that’s just to make the best of every situation.
So that follow co-worker that hates this new policy that corporate sent out or that friend that hates that so and so choose to stay home instead of hanging out, I will try to help them resolve this by showing them that even though this situation sucks it’s not the end of the world. With the co-worker I will try to explain to them that even though this new policy is a different way that we have to do our jobs but once we get used to it, it won’t be a big deal anymore. I know we are used to doing this but now we have to do that but once we get the hang of it, I’m sure we will realize that this is better and a more efficient way to do our jobs. I never say that the complainer is the only one that has to deal with this, I never say you, it’s always we or us. This helps to relieve some anger when they realize that it’s just not about them, it’s about all of us. Honestly, sometime this works and sometimes it doesn’t, some will get it, some won’t. That’s OK as long as I don’t let that negativity affect my day or life. Some people don’t want to be happy but I believe most of us truly do.
The same goes with the friend, I just try to explain that we don’t know what happen in our friends day and maybe they wanted to just relax at home and not be around others. That we shouldn’t take it personally, our friend doesn’t hate us they just want to be left alone right now. We can never know what others are going through, they could try to explain but unless we personally experience it we will never know for sure how others feel, so we all need to be respectful because if it was us we would want others to respect our situation. And that’s all I’m trying to get across, let’s just be decent humans and try to respect other people because we can never know what their life is truly like.
Thanks all, Hannah
