Dear Qui Talks: Enough with the Petty Stuff!

Dear Qui Talks,

Why is this world so petty? Everyone is being malicious and evil just to get an arousal out of others. We all are so quick to retaliate instead of educating/informing others.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “this may not have nothing to do with me?”

When you experience an issue with another individual, it may not be them being mean. In fact, that could be their true self. Just because you do not like their response, actions, or ways – you become petty!

For those who do not know what petty means. 

1. making things, events, or actions normal people dismiss as trivial or insignificant into excuses to be upset, uncooperative, childish, or stubborn.

2. A person who habitually overreacts.

3. A person who is purposefully childish with the intent of illiciting a reaction (sometimes funny).

4. An immature over reaction in retaliation of an undesired outcome.

We are all so quick to react as soon as we “feel” a type of way. Honestly, what you “feel” has nothing to do with them and entirely with you. In reality, you may just be seeing a person true honest self. Or my favorite is when you do not understand a situation instead of having a thorough conversation, you impulsively react.

People will hate what they do not understand!

We all have had hidden agendas and get upset when somebody else has a hidden agenda. Like they say, “treat others the way you would like to be treated.” If you are treating somebody else with an agenda, what makes you think that person may not treat you with an agenda?

I am sincerely tired of everyone and their pettiness and wanting to hurt others instead of bring people up. If someone hurts our feelings, we’re quick to find a way to hurt them more just to make ourselves feel better. Do you really feel better?

Have you ever thought to yourself about a time someone did something evil to you and you were confused about their actions? Especially since you were being a genuine person. Now flip the role! You’ve probably hurt people for no apparent reason.

“Two wrongs don’t make a right!”

I know….cliche…but a lot of people do not follow that rule. Next time you feel a type of way about a person, how about you be the bigger person and ask them what’s the problem?

Talkers, how petty were you this year? If none, what has held you back from it?
