There are many bad people in the world. And meeting them cannot be avoided. We can be strong, pray, meditate and try to create a “protective bubble” around us, but nothing can prevent this meeting.
Such people come into our lives in a variety of forms, and this is not always possible to notice in time. They may be among our colleagues, classmates, parishioners of the church and even relatives.
It is almost impossible to stop bad people from entering our lives, but never stop being a good person just because you are faced with someone who is bad.
True change comes from within. And those that are easily provoked by external factors are not really changes at all.
You are superior to succumbing to the negative influence of bad people. The ability to withstand unwanted external influences and to continue being yourself, regardless of what bad people want or what feelings they want to evoke in you, is a feature of truly strong personalities.
Be good to yourself
The desire to be a good person because of other people can be called fake kindness. Good deeds and kindness should be motivated by your sense of higher good and the goodness within you, and not what others may think of you. Be a good person first of all for yourself.
If you are good and kind to other people, they will also be kind to you. Everyone is better when we are all well. By allowing bad people to rob you of your virtues, you are showing that you have never been good to yourself. Otherwise, bad people could not deprive you of this trait. Be a good person for your reasons, not for anyone else.
An eye for an eye…Mahatma Gandhi is credited with saying that “the principle of an eye for an eye will make the whole world blind.” If you stop being a good person and start to do dubious things just because the world is full of bad people, then you blind everyone around you, causing them to suffer.
Bad people will hurt not only others, but you as well. If you close your eyes to their misconduct and begin to behave the same, they only increase their influence on you. But you can get rid of their influence by turning away from them and showing kindness to other people. Do not encourage hatred.
Believe in good
If you read this, then you are most likely a good person. It seems to me that I am also one of the good ones. Well, there are already two of us. You are not alone with your kindness. There are others in the world like you who feel the same way.
Therefore, if you meet a bad person, remember that in the world there is still good that other people carry in themselves. You are not alone. Stay strong in the face of negative personalities. Thus, you weaken their influence, strengthen your own and help create a better world.
