I was mean today and I liked it. I plan on being mean again soon. I had to put someone in their place today because I don’t respond well to being disrespected and screamed at.
Being mean keeps nasty people away. Being mean makes others notice and pay attention to what you are saying. Being mean works in getting your way.
I am not mean all the time, only when my back is against the wall or blamed for something I didn’t do or when someone is victimizing me.
Being mean is a form of emotionally protecting yourself. It takes courage to be mean. If you are nice all the time you will be taken advantage of. It’s great to be kind and loving and peaceful, but there are times to stand up for yourself, especially when dealing with people who want to get comfortable with obliterating your boundaries. It’s OK to be perceived as a villain.
Those who see you as a villain are the bad guys. Those who don’t see you as a villain are your fans.
Protecting yourself is vital to living a happy life. Otherwise you will feel hopeless.
Go ahead, protect yourself.
