Even Jerks Need Compassion
Into every life a jerk or two or three will fall. It is unavoidable. And let’s face it – sometimes we are the jerks. People become jerks mostly because they aren’t happy and they want everyone to know it and further, they want to make everyone else as miserable as they are. The point to remember is that jerks aren’t happy. They are miserable. That is why they are acting that way. So instead of getting upset with them, which is what they want, be compassionate with them instead. Feel sorry for them and then ignore them as best as possible. You will feel better immediately and more importantly resisting the urge to be a jerk right back means you will avoid further transmission of the jerk virus to those around you. And for that, humanity thanks you.
