Don’t Let the Rain Takeover

Fend em off

You know how sometimes the weather outside can affect your mood? Same is for how people in your life affect you. This goes from your coworkers in your office to your family and friends in you every day life.  Today, lets discuss this and see how to make sure we don’t let the outside world take over our everyday life.

Lets start off with an example today about this topic. Say you are at work,  your boss comes in all stressed, because he or she is annoyed with something that is happening at home. She/he then turns around to take it out on you and your team. She/he yells, points fingers, and slams doors. This probably doesn’t help you feel better about yourself, huh? How do we handle days like this?

Here’s the trick to surviving issues like the one above with your boss or anyone else who does this. Block it out, just because they can’t handle their emotions doesn’t mean it should ruin your day. Ignore what they are doing, just nod and smile if they are going on a rant. Be there for them, but don’t take the abuse. If they attack you personally, make sure to leave before you say something you regret. Just focus on what you have to do for the day and what makes you happy.

Thing is, misery loves company a lot, the more the merrier for them. Most people who are upset don’t know how to handle their emotions and lash out quickly without thinking. They may not even realize they are hurting people they care for.  You can fight back and have a giant yelling match or you can be the bigger person and go okay, that’s how want to handle it than handle it that way. Just don’t let them bring you to their level.

It’s easy to fall into someone’s downward spiral and get involved in their every day drama. That I am truly aware of, but you can fight it with your positive attitude and holding your head up high. It’s hard, but it can be done. It’s almost human nature to try to bring people down when you’re upset, because you want people to feel crappy like you. Remember that, next time your boss or best friend comes in slamming everything around and having a little hissy.

Not falling into the drama of others is key in this Savage World; that you are no longer just living in, but beginning to own!
