Let People Reveal Themselves

Over time people reveal who they really are to you. Many times when you’re a kind-hearted, softer person other people will assume you will never confront or question who they are or their character, so when you do you get the chance to see the true nature of this person on the inside. This doesn’t mean you have to sever ties, or maybe in some circumstances you will have to sever ties, but all-in-all just put what you see about another in your “awareness envelope” and keep that trait of theirs fresh in your mind so you can approach this person with more caution and less trust. If a person will bite you once, it is almost guaranteed they will bite you again. It is interesting what gets revealed when confrontations arise. The most important thing, those of us who are conflict aversive can do, is remain emotionally calm so you can keep your mind gathered and not fall into the soup of anothers petty defenses and provocations. Stay rational and keep your end of things direct but light. Once you become aware of a person’s true nature when put under pressure, your opinion will naturally shift about them which is not a negative thing. Once you know where the landmines are, you can be sure to aovid them. This is a gift.
