Why are some people mean? I’m not talking about a little mean, but bazaar, go out of their way to be mean.┬áRecently I’ve encountered a few mean people, I remind myself that these situations will make me a stronger person in the long run. But I can’t begin to tell you how upsetting it is, when someone has gone out of their way to be hurtful and unkind.

Have you noticed that these same mean people appear to do well in their careers? Mean and all?

Sometimes people you like are in cahoots with these mean peeps. I don’t think they even realize it, but these mean people know how to step on others to align themselves with the people you like.

The old me, the pre-yoga me, used to react with being mean right back, sometimes succeeding in being meaner. Did it help anything? No, not at all, it just made me feel bad in the long run. Now my approach is limiting my interaction with these types of people to the best of my ability.

I can only think that these individuals perhaps are hurting or have been hurt in the past and they have to take it out on someone else in order to feel better about themselves. I’m sure the “why they are like that” could be an entire post on the factors that go into being mean, the science behind it.

Each day I wake up, I’m happy to embrace whatever comes my way. My life is far from perfect, I have more than my share of problems, I just don’t choose to focus on them. I have fears, doubts and the day to day problems of life, but I go forward and work on my own truth and being as authentic as I can be to the best of my ability.

“There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy”

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Xoxo,
