IGNORE PEOPLE LIKE THEM

"I made the right choice", I said to myself that day. It was the day I ignored her as she has chosen to be that way. I knew right from time that our friendship wouldn't last long. She is always peevish to everyone in the hostel and you had wondered what came over her?

One minute she is playing and smiling, the other mins, she changes her mood. I wouldn't say mood swings but it's her nature to always be that way. She is proud of herself - pride over nothing. Everyone had left her to herself. No one wants to mingle or associate with people like that. I call it toxic friendship which I had to disengage myself from it before I get ruined.

An adage says when you know one's character, you leave them with it. Everyone in the hostel left her alone to her attitude because she isn't the type that should be seen with others. She is always looking for a slight mistake to fight, always ready to throw a blow even when the issue isn't something one should hear of to cause a fight.

It happened that my room leads to the roof to fix the light of everyone in the hostel and they need to take permission from the owner of the room which is me. I went for my exam yesterday morning and I didn't know her room had fault with light. She would have just called and inform me about someone coming to fix the light going through my room, she didn't.

My plan was to finish my exam and get home to carry my bag as I didn't want to delay myself again especially that I don't go late in Journey.

When I got home to carry my bag, a guy just entered without even knocking. Like who does that? A lady's room for that matter. What if I was naked? I shouted and it was the bad manner from him that made me tell him I am already traveling and can't wait anymore.

The next thing was for this lady to retort in an angry way and was like "What do you mean?" I knew she had come with her fight and I don't want to create any scene for myself. I don't like arguing or causing rift at all. I didn't say anything to her because she was waiting for me to talk.

My question then was "what if I had carried my bag to the examination hall and went from school, will she open my door at my absence?"

It's a thing she would come to me in a polite manner and explained things to me but she didn't. Probably she thought I would also be ready to fight but no! Two people can't be a goat at the same time. One needs to be calm like a sheep when the goat in the other misbehaves.

I had to call the guy and asked when he would be through. Well, the guy later apologized to me for opening my door without knocking. I allowed him do whatever he needed to do at that moment and I zoomed off.

When you see people like this around you, the best is to ignore them and leave them alone. They are always finding the excuse to fight all the time but you should be patient and calm when they prove stupid sometimes.

Some people are sadly always looking to antagonize others a man start a fight being the bigger person and not being drawn into a fight is not always easy but often the best thing to do

Some people are always looking for a way to fight no doubt but some are going through a lot and you might not realize it and they just lash out at others.

You did the right thing indeed. It is the stronger person who turns around and walks away.

You sadly find these people who are always finding fault with others and picking fights with everybody. What they forget is while pointing one finger at someone to point out his mistakes, you forget about all the fingers pointing back at yourself.

My oldest daughter has a saying I love. She always says don't argue with people who don't know what they are talking about. To argue with them you have to go down to their level and there they will beat you with experience...

So again...you did the right thing! Well done.

"Two people can't be a goat at the same time."

This is like 2 rights don't make a wrong; except I much prefer the way you put it lols! It lends such a comical picture to the uselessness of unnecessary argument. Well done for being the bigger and better person in all of this. It is never nice when others act like complete idiots and treat people with unkindness and disrespect. You came away with your head held high. Well done :-) !PIZZA

Yes, I love using that statement "two people can't be a goat at the same time" 😁
We all know goats are always stubborn and do not hear word, so one needs to be like a sheep that is gentle and calm.

Thank you for stopping by
