"If you meet an asshole in the morning, you meet an asshole. If you meet an asshole all day, you're the asshole." Do you believe this statement?

"If you meet an asshole in the morning, you meet an asshole. If you meet an asshole all day, you're the asshole." Do you believe this statement?

I am inclined to agree.

Here's a story, for those with patience to read. Others can skip.

I had just gotten into my car and started driving. The windows were open.

I noticed the smell of shit that assaulted my nostrils. I was upset and thought that the path was perhaps used as a bathroom by those who were too poor to pay for a bathroom. These areas exist in many cities in India.

I thought that after I left, the smell would disappear. After turning a corner, I found that the smell continued. I thought this was also another town like this. Then I came to a well-known and prosperous town and the smell still didn't

I thought that after I left, the smell would disappear. After turning a corner, I found that the smell continued. I thought this was also another town like this. Then I came to a well-known and prosperous town and the smell still did not leave me.

Suddenly I realized what was happening. Yes, the smell was coming from the soles of my shoes. Without realizing it, I had stepped on some shit somewhere before getting in the car and I was carrying it with me everywhere.

The understanding was sobering. I stopped. He left. I took the bottle of water that I always keep in my car, found a suitable spot, and used the water to remove things from the soles of my shoe.

The city smelled good from then on.

Thanks to Parul Gupta for reminding me of the following doha (couplet) from Kabir, which is very relevant in this context.

From my point of view, this phrase makes sense up to a point. If you hate or think that a particular person is an idiot, no problem, you are on the safe side. But if you see a lot of people that way, trust me, you have a serious problem. Either your ability to socialize is low or your understanding of people needs to be checked immediately. Everyone at some point is an idiot to a particular group of people, that does not mean that you are an idiot. It is the moment and the situations make us look like one.

From my point of view, this phrase makes sense up to a point. If you hate or think that a particular person is an idiot, no problem, you are on the safe side. But if you see a lot of people that way, trust me, you have a serious problem. Either your ability to socialize is low or your understanding of people needs to be checked immediately. Everyone at some point is an idiot to a particular group of people, that does not mean that you are an idiot. It is the moment and the situations make us look like one.

Coming to the solution part, there is my favorite quote "Before criticizing a man, walk a mile in his shoes."

This statement makes sense, up to a point. Think of it this way ...

You are on the highway and you see a car driving in the wrong direction. Pretty routine, right? "Oh, an idiot today was driving in the wrong lane ..." you would say.

What if you see cars after cars driving in the "wrong" direction, yelling obscenities at you as they pass? After the initial panic, you would realize that YOU are in the wrong lane. That's what the statement wants to convey, I think.

(ignore the fact that the driver here is a woman).

It is certainly true.

If you find fault with someone, it is acceptable. If you hate some people, then again it's pretty normal.

But if you go to the extreme of finding fault with 'everyone', that everyone else is wrong and you, no one but you, are the only one who is perfect, free of imperfections and without errors and you think you are. the perfect epitome of a 'no-jerk', then it's time for you to realize that you are the Lord of 'jerks'.

You are the biggest jerk, as big as the chicxulub crater.

Briefly, before finding fault with others, introspection.

No I dont think so. There are definitely situations where everyone around you is an idiot. Like when they tease you and discriminate against you for something you can't control, like being of a certain race or gender. Or when you have ASD like me and other people are impatient with your social mistakes or when there is a big jerk who somehow makes other people on his side attack you for proxy through manipulation.

Yes. It is meant to be more like an allegory or a parable. It is intended to reflect the idea that if you regularly think that everyone else is an idiot, then the problem is probably with yourself.

It really really depends on the city you are in. Sacramento is full of jerks, jerks, and worse. Get out of town in half an hour and it's like a whole different world.

Ask others, is this a matter of the center of government? Or is it exclusive to Sacramento?

Most of the people in this world are idiots, you can't trust anyone (human selfishness) but if you think that everyone is idiot in the whole area, then you have a high probability of being an idiot, maybe all the people in the area they are too, but the probability is very low

Absolutely not !!! Come on, don't judge a book by its cover or even if you already know it. Try to change your perspective on him / her. By saying that you will be revived and your mental state will be good for the rest of your day.

I don't usually confront idiots. What would be the point?

I'm not going to cure them of their bullshit. They were unhealthy and unpleasant long before it appeared. They have to wake up and be that person. Instead, it makes me feel lucky to be me.

I avoid assholes. Life is hard enough without inviting people who make me miserable. Idiots are confusing ... and anyway, my judgments about people exist to protect me. I don't arbitrate the behavior of others ... but I don't have to buy their trash either. I will not make the world a better place by calling all the inconsiderate, ignorant

I don't arbitrate the behavior of others ... but I don't have to buy their trash either. I'm not going to make the world a better place by calling all the inconsiderate and ignorant people I meet.

I make the world a better place by being ethical and reasonable.

If they are doing something mean or cruel to someone else, I get distressed about it, but I try to stop it. I am better at dealing with bad behavior on behalf of other people.

If I have to deal with a jerk, I get very natural and smooth. I'm not going to let anyone in that I don't want to. The worst thing is when someone tries to convince you that you agree with their opinions or seem like a reasonable person at first. I do that quick tap dance ... "Sorry (apologizing for nothing is a bad habit and sounds weak, it's like a cushion) I disagree."

I try not to react. No one is going to visibly alter my feathers. Half the time they're pushing the asshole button looking for a reaction.

I'll let someone dig in a hole, look at them flat, and say "okay" with no other answer. It drives people crazy.

I take care of whatever business he has with the asshole and leave as soon as I can. If I have to deal with them over and over again ... I keep my interactions short, professional, and neutral.

I could walk away and mutter "jerk" under my breath as soon as I'm out of earshot ... or hit an inanimate object. Then I think of something else.

Two guys of these now. Those who are online and those who are in person.

Know that both of you are almost always in some kind of pain, misery, stress, and probably terrible money problems.

Most likely, you will catch them at a time when they are about to lose control.

This loss of control manifests itself in a variety of ways, with a large part of it being negative. Quick to curse, and those who make it difficult and if not impossible to fix something when you actually have the ability to solve the problem in seconds.

Knowing this can put everyone in perspective, it's not who they are all the time, but for now why?

Knowing this can put everyone in perspective, it's not who they are all the time, but for now, because you were the only one in the present or you were the easy target of the prey, you were chosen.

Stress, negative energy, violent tremors have to go somewhere and since we live in uncertain times, one day someone may be on top of the world and the next let go.

I treat them like I'm dealing with a wounded snake. There is no solution for them today, and tomorrow will be a better day for them, but by then I will have moved on as I suggest you do.

Keep this in mind that there are already real threats that can destroy your day, but asses shouldn't be one of them, as the world has so many wounded.

My favorites A hole are those who buy from my company on my website.

I call them to confirm the order, quantity, color and address, but before I can get that far they want to know how I got there and panic takes over as no one ever called them to confirm an order. .

I tell them that I am the owner of the business and that they don't care if they are calling the police and then calling, as of course I gave my number on the website and the police wrote down a report.

Then I have to decide if I send them the product, so I write them an email thank you for talking to me on the phone, I just need to confirm the order and they answer me, are you the person who called me?

If I'm the owner who called and they tell you now that you're canceling my order, I don't like this.

So no amount of kindness, no amount of courtesy, no amount of love or logic will stop those in that moment of existence.

I hope that helps you .

My good side means "showing empathy" and "being the greatest person", but that advice has made me walk more than I would prefer. If you do this long enough, you start to resent people in general or isolate yourself from the world, or both (this is just from my experience, although not healthy). I will say that you begin to appreciate your alone time almost too much. Loneliness is a powerful weapon against ignorance, but being alone all the time is mentally damaging. It really comes down to not expecting everyone to like you because they usually don't like themselves. Who and where

I will say that you begin to appreciate your alone time almost too much. Loneliness is a powerful weapon against ignorance, but being alone all the time is mentally damaging. It really comes down to not expecting everyone to like you because they usually don't like themselves. When you're comfortable in your own skin, you'll notice the ones that aren't. At some point in your life, if you stay true, you will find the right circle of people who fit your personality. It won't be 24 hours a day 7 days a week because the real world of "assholes" will always be there, but at least you will have people who will appreciate you for who you are in your life and I think every human being yearns for that. Don't compromise, but it can help you (like me) develop a bit of thicker skin to fight off these common folks you'll come across. If someone insults you or your character, tell them that they are simply being an idiot and that they must have a low sense of self-worth and an inflated ego. In short, don't let them. You may feel like an idiot because it is out of your context, but that person will not treat you in the same way and will eventually learn some respect for people. I know some people who don't deal with small talk and just put their knuckles on their chin. Unfortunately, this also seems to get the message across, but it comes at a high cost. In my life, I have tried both (both work, but I try the first option first if possible). It is a brutal world, but you must learn to be assertive rather than turbulent. You must learn to fight instead of flee. Just realize that being right or wrong, making a mistake, is different from someone insulting your character; don't let them do that. It takes time and patience inside of you. Courage and confidence are also needed. And last but not least, being nice and being nice are two completely different things. To be nice is to be honest with someone; to be nice is to tell someone what they want to hear. Be kind, don't be afraid, and be yourself. Life will work out for you in the end if you follow that motto. ) It is a brutal world, but you must learn to be assertive rather than turbulent. You must learn to fight instead of flee.

Sharp looks and a rolling pair of eyes are the trademark of crafty people, you will find that they can pretend they are very smiling, but look at them off guard, they will be busy with self-love, that is, their decorations or sideways glances. . others that look handsome or beautiful, perhaps in the case of gender, and drops of jealousy and snatching flesh kind of cunning fox gaze cannot be missed if you look closely, oh yes, in case your eyes Shock a quick smile is what you can expect.

The restless body and the movement towards the central place or a corner to observe and record the activities and people, on the contrary, the simple one would be to have a calm look and would be blessed with a comforting smile.

Yes, cunning also has a restless peace of hands and an elaborate face in case of sitting on a stage or heading to a podium, the pretense would be high in case of being under the focus of lime light, however, cunning always has an inquisitive pair of eyes for one. who is in the fortress, because cunning is always inspired by an eternal greed observed in an approach too ambitious to usurp and dominate even the legitimate ones.

Cunning can show a flash of controlled anger in case public desire spreads, that is, anger will erupt but immediately subdue with an absolutely opposite smile, while simple, if upset, will reflect anger like an earthquake with trembling for a reasonable and maximum time. Silence but without recovering a smile tone, this is a real cunning.

Yes, fast talk is another aspect, and the goal is for hasty words to slip into the dark shadow and ghastly confirmation.

Behavioral study and probes and deep questions should be used to confirm the same, as the naive should not be construed as cunning, which is a possibility, as the naive may be mistakenly imitating at the time.

Mark the words please: Appearances can be misleading, as physical structure can be, so despite the general cues, deep research, open interview, where anything and everything can be casually questioned is a great asset in evaluation.
