It’s not about you, it’s about them. I’ve had to let go of blaming me.
People treat you the way you allow them and teach them to treat you. Love yourself. ~ Wendy Shea
Better to ignore people who’s treating like a beast, never to go down at their level.
We should not permit them to destroy ourselves and our confidence. ~ Masr Masreyya
Most people don’t realise this as they often feel it’s about them and can feel a loss of self esteem.
When someone lists your negative qualities, it’s actually qualities that person possesses. It’s called projection.
We live in a reflective reality and you can learn about yourself through the way others interact with you. What is it about your energies that are attracting ‘this’ into your life. People externalise our sub-conscious for us so that we may expand our awareness. ~ Ian Cousins
Sounds like these people are jealous of you and are cruel enough to want to hurt you. That is evil and childish behavior and the best way to deal with them is to ignore them. You are too good and kind for them and as it says, it’s about who they are, not you. ~ Victoria Mack
Treating people the way they treat you is only lowering yourself to their standards, and makes you no different. You have to rise above them and move on, not act like them. ~ Brenda Thyrre
We must be able to forgive, and move on. Sometimes things get turned around and everyone is so much better for it. Life is way too short to carry hatred and hurt in our hearts. Prayer always helps too. ~ Sara Schaffnit
Forgiveness is good, and necessary if possible, but the next line of this should be about how much we will tolerate, drawing that line in the sand which says stop, you will no longer treat me in a disrespectful manner. Continuing to allow unkind or unacceptable treatment from others does, eventually, say a great deal about you. Standing up for yourself is self-respect and should not be compromised. It does not equal being intolerant. ~ Melissa Williams
Some people are so miserable with their life that they want to bring others down with them. They enjoy making drama too when it is not needed. They live on making drama because they are miserable and dont like seeing other people happy. I can’t wait till I can get away from such a person. It’s like being in the presence of evil. Example, now that she knows she can’t get to me any more, she tries even harder to cause the drama. Don’t let these kinds of people get to you. ~ Diane Nolasco
People typically treat you the way you allow them to treat you. If you are assertive and typically don’t allow people to disrespect you. Most people quickly learn to not be disrespectful toward you. Some people, unfortunately, are socially-inept and don’t set boundaries for themselves. So, they behave selfishly, self-importantly and are rude toward others. Those are the people that force you to set boundaries for them. When forced to do so, be strict but fair. Eventually, they should learn to self-regulate their behavior and you can begin to relax your vigilance. Though, you may always need to supervise and regulate their behavior, if you plan to allow them to be a part of your life. Of course, you always have the option of using ultimatums to keep them sociable. Or, you can always unfriendly them and move on with your life. ~ Rick Baisden
People who do not know how to be happy will not know how to make you happy and will not know how to recognize happiness. People who do not believe they can be loved or are loved do not know how to love or how to receive love. People who have not forgiven themselves will not accept when you have forgiven them or how to forgive. It is not always you, it’s about them. Not an easy thing to accept. However, you have to make a decision on how long you give them to realize they must treat you the same way you treat them. ~ Mayrlin Nuñez
Those who love to destroy people have small mind and big mouth. They are happy when they see people unhappy. Let us pray for them, be quiet because they will not listen, they will realized at the end but they will not admit. ~ Maybel Niko
If you don’t respect yourself then people won’t respect you is something that I’ve read before. So love yourself and then you will be loved. I do agree though that some people out there are just plain mean and treat others poorly due to their own insecurities. ~ Andrea Hurley
I don’t care how people treat me as long as they don’t have any power over me. ~ David Velasquez
