How to Deal With Passive-Aggressive People

April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 448

Everything is energy and one of the most dangerous and largest drains of energy are passive aggressive people. They can sneak into your life under the guise of friends looking out for you, and suck all the positive energy out of you. But if you remember to choose your reactions, choose your emotions, choose who you surround yourself with and learn to celebrate only positive support, then you can deal with the passive aggressive people and have abundance and prosperity.

Choose your reaction

In every interaction with every person you meet, you will have to choose how you react to their behavior. This is especially true when it comes to passive aggressive people. Passive aggressive people act they way they do because they get energy and attention from being able to push your buttons and get you to react in the way they want you to. You can maintain control by knowing you have total control of how you react top everything they do, and can choose to not play their game.

Choose your emotions

You have the power to choose how you react, but the danger of a passive aggressive person is much deeper than just your reaction. A passive aggressive person can start to have a negative influence on your emotions as well. They can get you to start to believe negative things about yourself short-circuiting your ability to think positively. This is the true danger of being around these people and something you must learn to control. You and only you can choose your emotions, do not let them choose for you.

Choose who you surround yourself with

One of the best and simplest ways of dealing with passive aggressive people is just to avoid having them in your life. We all know the signs of these types of people, they are people who say they want the best for you but you leave every interaction with them feeling worse about yourself. If you have people like this in your life then you can choose to no longer have them in your life. Be honest with them, tell them you find their passive aggressive behavior to be unhealthy. If they do not change their ways, then get them out of your life, you will be happier for it.

Learn to be celebrate supportive moments

The final key to being able to deal with passive aggressive people, especially those you cannot get rid of, is to choose to only focus on positive and supportive actions. If they act in a negative way ignore it and move on, but be almost overly obnoxious in the way you celebrate when they do support you in a positive way. The more you make them feel good for being supportive the more you will train them to want to support you instead of undermining you. You can help them change by celebrating when they behave in a manner you want.
