Hence, I say, ” Velvet is your armour against the ruggy kind.”
What always works is being affirmative yet soft and smooth as Velvet. Retorting is easy, but taking a minute, breathing and replying with a least bothered tone can kill the thunder that hovers above the slightest of chaos. Ruggy here refers to the harsh or aggressive human behavior.
Politely walking away and refraining from fueling the situation further, even though if it is in the form of defenses or arguments with good intentions of improving the individual; are going to stand futile as the person infront is simply venting and isn’t calm enough to grasp any kind of information or advice. They’ve simply found a channel to vent all at once with some old residues as well. Let them empty themselves and be an ear of a person to them, if possible. The words said by such people have no necessary hostile intention of hurting you. Not entirely. Mostly, only a quarter of it.
its an art being able to remain kind even when the other person is dying to get a reaction out of you. It is an art to be able to overlook all the personal jabs and instead empathising with them. Emphasis on empathising here. We shouldn’t let our mind run unstable. We’re the master of our mind. Who’s incharge of it? Been us. Will continue to be us.
So, let your rug be of velvet, kind to even the inhuman. They won’t be able to create dust after a point of time.
Velvet is your armour against the ruggy kind.
