Words can hurt only if you give them the power to.

No matter how friendly and good-hearted you may be, you will always have to deal with hateful people at some point in your life.It is impossible to shield yourself or your loved ones from negativity, so the only things you can do are learn how to deal with hateful people and grow thicker skin.

While approaching the problem head on and confronting the person directly may often solve the problem, other times the best thing to do is to ignore the negativity altogether.

With time, you learn from personal experiences and realize that most personal attacks are not worth your time.

Therefore think whether that hateful person really deserves your attention.

The only way to come out on top in this type of a situation is to not stoop to their level.

Gandhi once said “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” Instead of making it a bigger deal than it already is, there are classier ways to deal with the situation.
