There are people who want to engage in conflict with everyone they meet. They have a driving force inside their brains to seek revenge on the people who has wronged them in their previous life. Some of these people can’t let go of their past so they project grudges onto future people. When this happens, the unbeknown person falls prey to the competitive person’s emotions while trying to avoid them at all cost.
Some people have a habit of leaning into every punch that’s being thrown at them. Their ego’s are blown way out of proportion and they think they’re on top of the world. These people think they can do anything they want without consequences. Mindsets like this will only make you a target for a person who suffers from low self esteem and want you to feel the same way that they do. They’re jealous of the fact that you’re walking with your head held high, higher than theirs, so they will do anything to tear you down.
You can avoid these kinds of people by simply staying calm. They will immediately pick up on your calm energy and either continue to berate you, or simply stop messing with you. They’ll feel like they’ve defeated you or that they can’t compete with you. It is very important to make the person feel like they’re powerful and on top of the world. Once they receive that pleasure, they usually walk away feeling confident.
Also, try to look like you don’t want to be bothered with. Sometimes projecting a sad or depressed energy out into the world will keep certain people away from you. Look like you have a lot going on in life, like things are in shambles, will keep them confused about your intentions. Body language readers who want conflict with you will stay away because they’re uncertain of your actions. This may also bring on police attention if you’re in the streets loitering or walking around in a bad neighborhood. Unfortunately, in this society, when people see you in a depressed mood they feel powerful. Some folks feel sad as they pick up on your energy, whereas, others feel like they’re on top of you. To a conflicting person they will feel like they’ve dominated you and that’s the feeling you want from them. This will make them leave you alone. Remember, the conflicting person only want the satisfaction of defeating you. So why not give it to them, temporarily. At the end of the day, that’s the main feeling that they are seeking. So, stay away from conflicting people. Let them feel their temporary power and joy. At the end of the day, you might be the better man for “walking away.”
