Stay out of trouble

I'm not someone who enjoys being in trouble or to start trouble. I'm a peaceful loving creature who likes to enjoy chatting with friends and talk about just anything and everything under the sun.

Recently, I noticed that no matter how I try to stay out of an argument, argument seems to come closer. And then I realised, I just have to stay out of trouble but how?

I took note of the things that started everything and made a conclusion. To stay out of trouble I must stay away from people who:

1. Have so many hang ups they couldn't seem to get over with

2. Highly stressed out

3. Extremely insecure

4. and pessimistic

I even learned not to start any kind of conversation with people described above as I had already experienced being snapped at. When my husband arrived from a stressful work, I just prefer to stay out of his sight or we would just be arguing. I learned to just answer his questions and ignore his sarcasms.

If you have no alternative but to stick around those who display the above mentioned characteristics then you need to change.

Sometimes when I find myself in company with people like this, I just calmly walk away. One in partucular, gets very irate when people walk away during one of his harangues, but It's my life and if I don't want his negativity invading it, it's my option to argue or walk away. walking away is easier on me.

Not really change, but I just have to know how to stay quiet.

Two thumbs up for you for walking away. I, too, am doing that!

frenchtoast78 Sometimes those are unavoidable but keeping a positive attitude helps. I don't like getting into arguments either.

Yes, sometimes as cheerful as we are, not everybody else is all that cheerful, so it's hard to avoid getting sucked into their drama, sometimes. I do try to avoid people like that, too.
