Yesterday I posted about people who drain your will to live, by their constant nitpicking and impossibly high standards. Don’t even try to satisfy these people, they’re only interested in putting you down. Perhaps, at some deep-seated level, they are envious of your abilities, and wish they could have it for themselves. And the only way they know how to get it, is to steal it from you, by putting you down.
I found these quotes on Pinterest while researching my topic. I hope that if you ever find yourselves in the same situation, these words will help you navigate your way out of those muddy waters. Remember, it’s not you, it’s them.
A long time ago I walked away from just the sort of person described. I felt so much better immediately. That’s how I recognised the type when I saw it coming. But some people you just can’t get away from that easily…and although my personal circumstances have improved a hundredfold, I have to put up with this fly in the ointment. For the time being, anyway. Let’s see where the wind blows, and I’ll adjust my sails accordingly. Either this person leaves, or I will, when the time is right. Life’s too short to have to deal with small-minded bullies like that. I want no part in their soap opera.
