Our Attitude Towards Bad Attitude

How often had you encountered an awkward situation wherein you are quite stupefied on how beautiful a girl is or how good-looking a man is only to be disgusted or worst turned off because of their oppositely bad attitude? Beauty can easily deteriorate because of such behavior. In the end, character is what defines us.

It is indeed uncomfortable and definitely frustrating to deal with a person who has a nasty attitude. By its definition, attitude means “a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person's behavior.” It is our mental state of being translated through our actions and most often through what comes out of the mouth.

Our Attitude Towards Bad Attitude
What is more challenging now is what will you do when that person is a friend, a relative, a co-worker, or even your spouse?

Most of these types of people are bad-mouthed, bossy, demanding, ill-tempered, loud, impatient, consistent naggers and rude where they think that nothing good really goes their way and that every little thing that goes off-hand upsets them so easily. These are types of people who know how to criticize heavily but don’t know how to accept criticisms in returnHow they ended up that way comes along way such as a bad childhood, life experiences with a lot of negativity, the fear of rejection, their environment, as well as their outlook in life.

What you need to do is to try to understand where all of these are coming from and let them realize that life has its ups and downs and encourage them rather to focus on the positive side of everything more than wasting their time succumbing to the opposite direction.

Being on the upper hand, it is very important to be extra patient and be very understanding as it will be quite hard for them to overcome their attitude. You just can’t change an attitude overnight. And there are even times where you will be the target of their defiance and hostility when you force them to change it at once. In the end, when you remain to be kind-hearted, soft-spoken and patient, they will fully understand what your real intention is and will eventually mirror how you behave towards them.

Most often, they are perfectly aware of their behavior but don’t bother to change it because no one ever told them or made them realize how unpleasant or hurtful it is to other people. Talk it over. Pray for them. Help them establish a real relationship with the Lord. Genuine concern shows how much you care for them. If you rip one by one the sturdy fa├žade of being bossy, bad-mouth, demanding, nagging, irritating, and being prickly, deep inside is a soul that is vulnerable and weak. They just mask their frailty.


So the next time that you see someone with an attitude, instead of running away from him, take that chance instead to help him change for the better.
