There are two ways to handle hurtful people.
One, try to hurt them as much as they’ve hurt you.
Two, feel sorry for them.
Why turn yourself into the very thing you hate about hurtful people and why not pity them instead?
Think thoughts such as these:
It must be awful to have to ramble on in such a hateful way.
Hurting others makes it harder for them to love and accept you.
If you said what you just said to me into a mirror, you wouldn’t like the way you look.
What happen in your life to make you this mean?
Just the few seconds it takes to show some kind of compassion to people who don’t deserve it, allows you to separate their venom from your heart and mind.
Having compassion for people who hurt us is the first step toward letting it go and enjoying your life.
