Hurting others

    Why do people hurt others who are rather harmless and know they would not hit back? And, all the while knowing fully well that they are being unfair?

      They take them as soft targets. They hurt them because they can't hurt others who will react by hurting them back.

    They sometimes don't even realize they're being unfair.  They're way too stressed out and prone to lash out without thinking.  They need to step back from themselves, and learn to relax..not jump to conclusions, be more open-minded and put themselves in the other person's shoes.

    It all comes down to mindset and mental attitude.  Can you change that?  Of course you can..any thought process can be changed..the mind is very flexible..it just takes time.  Of course if drugs or alcohol are involved it takes even longer. 

    Oh yeah..and they need to become a good listener too smile
