Hey, this will be a short one as I for one have not been having a good week. Ironic right? That today’s topic is about the way that some of us are being treated. I know the pain all too well, the disrespect, being left out, feeling alone during your darkest moments. It’s not easy, that’s for sure. But what if I told you that there was a way around it…well sort of.
Being treated like crap isn’t easy and we all know it. Sometimes we feel that the world owes us something, but, it doesn’t. We were all put on this earth for a reason, we all have a purpose and we need to figure out what it is. However, being treated poorly is not one of them. Everybody on this planet deserved to be treated with dignity and love. Not with hate and informality. Even if the world isn’t fair, why do people have to be?
What I do sometimes is I distance myself from the world around me for a day or two. I recommend this because I see it as safe, but whatever you do don’t make it more than two days. Once I complete my distancing, I think about the people who are treating me poorly and try to figure out what it is exactly what led to that moment.
Now, I must warn you. This isn’t an easy task and not for the faint of heart. You may wonder down the rabbit hole like Alice, but instead, you won’t come back. You might snap and want to lash at the person treating you that way. Well, don’t do that and just take what I say with consideration.
Think about the person who’s treating you badly and think about what led to this. Just that one person and no one else. Soon, you may or may not find a connection to the others and what events led to your treatment. But you’ll have clarity on what’s going on around you. The next step you should do is decide what to do next.
This decision may be considered tough for some, and easy for others. But you as the person must decide if you want to demand respect from the person, or you can do what I do and cut them out of your life. The reason why I do this is that I feel there’s not enough time and energy to change a person’s perspective about you. If they wanted to respect you, they would’ve done it now.
You’re better than this and you know it. You deserve to be respected just like everyone else. Just don’t forget that it must be earned first. If you earned it and you still don’t get treated with respect. Then pack it up and leave. This goes for your work and personal life. Relationships with co-workers, friends, family, or that special someone. If they can’t treat you with respect then you need to just walk away.
