Some people walk around with nothing but extra baggage and a chip on their shoulder. Old grudges that they have let sit and fester. George Washington Carver said, “Fear is at the root of hate for others, and hate within will eventually destroy the hater.” That means people that are negative and just rude all the time act like that because they are afraid. They don’t face the problems in life that they are afraid of. Instead, they blame them on others and when the blame does not stick, they become even more afraid and that fear turns into more hate.
Trying to communicate
As a lot of us are pretty well aware of this already, we try to learn how to be able to talk to people like this in the work place because we still have to work around them. We just have to keep in mind that some people are just impossible and that’s just the way they are. The responsible thing for us to do is to not try to change them to be the way we may wish they would be, and that’s exactly what it is, wishing. This will give them the room they need to grow.
Try to talk to them politely
However, make sure you draw some clear lines for them not to cross and when your other co-workers see you treating them like this, they will probably start treating them the same because a lot of them will feel the same way that you do. The negative person may react in a hateful way still, just don’t take it personally and go about your work day. There are plenty of other people you can talk to that are more apt to being social with people and not rude to them, for one thing. However, you have a boss that is looking at your performance as an individual as well as with how you interact with others and he or she will probably be somewhat aware of the situation. If they are not, you may want to discuss it to them. There is no reason to have to tolerate people bullying others in the work place because they are having a bad day.
