Yes, they say no man is an island but we all came into this world alone and we will all leave it alone.
So what do you do when someone you know starts to feel too important, or isn’t adding any reasonable value to your life or if in fact that person is causing you more harm than good?
YOU KICK ‘EM TO THE CURB. How?
#1 DON’T HATE ‘EM, PITY ‘EM!
Everyone will have haters.
Haters are surely going to hate.
They would hate what you wear.
How you walk,what you do, how you talk, blah blah blah…
But since you are the matured person; the bigger person, don’t hate them back, wish them well and pray that some day they have something better to do with their lives.
#2 DON’T BE INSULTIVE
You don’t need to be nasty.
You can get your point across without spewing vile words.
Be polite and respectful.
But be firm.
Simply saying; “Please don’t talk to me” will do the trick.
#3 DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!
Stop picking up their calls; if they still do not get the message pick-up and tell them point blank
“please, stop calling me” and hang up.
Don’t read or respond to their emails.
Block them from social media, instant messaging, facebook, eskimi, 2go, whatsapp, bbm and the likes.
Stop greeting, put your etiquette classes to waste.
Even if they say hi, don’t respond!
And maybe, get an headset or earphones; even if you are not listening to anything and you put them on, the other person would be clueless.
If they approach you in public, just kindly tell them to leave you alone and that you do not want anything to have to do with them, don’t get violent, even if the other person tries to, just walk away.
You have to stand for something or you’ll fall for everything.
Remember why you decided to start ignoring them.
Remember how all the hurtful things they did or said about you.
#5 SMILE, SMILE, SMLILE. 😀
Flaunt your God-given teeth you never know how long you are going to have them.
Plus smiling helps you loose weight!
#6 IGNORE THEM SO HARD THAT THEY DOUBT IF THEY EXIST.
Don’t talk about them with your friends.
Don’t make eye contact with them, not even by accident.
Don’t acknowledge their presence.
Imagine they are invincible like they are all a bunch of shadow walkers from x-men.
#7 GET BUSY.
Learn how to do something, develop a hobby, start taking a course, play a sport, go bowling, skateboarding, ride a bike, start a blog. 😀
Keep yourself occupied so you don’t start wondering what the other person is doing.
#ON A FINAL NOTE
Keep your head high.
Don’t show them that you are afraid of them.
Don’t show that you are affected by them in any way, that will only make them feel important.
Hang out with friends.
Forget all about them.
Show that you are better off without ’em.
