4 Ways To See The Best In People When They’re Behaving Badly


We all behave poorly from time to time. And as we become more enlightened we must see the love in others, no matter what.

1) We will not always be surrounded by positive, like-minded people

We don’t choose our families. We don’t always get to choose who we work with. So, it’s essential that we work on dropping the judgment and seeing the positive traits in others—even when they’re acting like jerks. These are things that we have to freely accept.

2) See that all people are good at their core

We’re all good. Think about what innocent creatures we were when we were born. When we’re not being good, we’re just being scared. We’re all a complicated mixture of nature and nurture. We’re all driven towards survival. We’re all doing the best we can with what we’ve got to work with. If we’re behaving badly and making poor choices it’s because we’re being driven by fear. The most difficult people are typically the ones who are most afraid. Consider this when dealing with others.

3) Those who are the most difficult to love need it the most

Try your best to love the most difficult people without judgment. They are the ones all too often paralyzed with fear. And because love conquers fear, you can help these people get out of their fear-based behaviors by simply allowing them to be who they are, without anger or criticism.

4) Everybody has redeeming characteristics

Some people have more than others, but absolutely everyone’s got them. It’s your job to find them and celebrate them. Perhaps the person you’re dealing with has a negative view of life due to past traumas. They’ve not found their own spiritual path. Perhaps they just need someone to love them without conditions. When dealing with people who tend to behave badly, simply remember these truths. You might find this opens your eyes to seeing them in a more loving and compassionate light.
