I can't believe I am saying this just a few days after I reminded my blog readers that I refuse to reward bad behavior - that I am in fact, not going to put any more energy into someone who I can't change or rectify their bad behavior. At some stage, people just won't change. They will laugh it off and pretend it didn't happen.


Then what happens is you spend your time putting in place the procedures to ensure that their bad behavior is not rewarded only to find that you have spent a lot of time and effort and at the end of the day, they are who they are, and most people if they have not been brought up properly with good manners will never change.

Most people are good. They care about others and they in general do the right thing. But we don't always get that right and when its a matter of the heart or a business deal that has been ruthlessly dealt with, we sometimes want to fight back or at least teach these people who always get away with it, a valuable lesson.

But only hours after agreeing to something, I have decided that it is not worthwhile. It won't teach them a lesson and it may hurt others that don't deserve to be brought into the drama. 

Some people are not nice. Not kind. Not honorable. Not respectful. Leave them fly from one friend to another and only have people around them that they pay or support to have there.

While the rest of us can enjoy being with our loved ones, caring about not just our family and friends but others around us and showing good manners even in the worse situations.

So sorry readers... I have had a change of heart in the past few hours and for me it's best. I have an amazing business to focus on and I can't afford to waste time on people that are just not nice. Karma always comes backs and bites them. I don't need to! Nor do I need to contribute to it. Share your thoughts on this topic!
