How to deal with rude behaviour?

What do you do when someone behaves very rudely towards you?

• Get upset

• React rudely back

• Get frustrated

• Run away and avoid the person or situation

• Blame the person

• Preach to the person

None of these will in any way strengthen you. Then what are the options?

See rude behaviour in this light:

• It indicates the intensity of their commitment

• It indicates their stress and insensitivity

• It projects the upbringing of the person

• It shows a behavioural pattern

• It shows lack of Knowledge

• It shows lack of observation of the mind and its sensations

• It shows you behaviour to avoid

• It is an opportunity for you to welcome and absorb the rudeness

• It strengthens your mind

• It reveals the love that you are as unconditional

The next time when someone is rude to you, just give back a broad smile. If you can digest their rudeness, nothing whatsoever can shake you.
