Why are people mean and nasty? (Listen while you read)
What makes a person mean and nasty?
We thought it a good idea to jot down a few insights below:
There are many answers to this question:
Firstly; it is man’s intent to remain in control. Yes, control is a factor in man’s nastiness. And what is meant by this?
Man feels inadequate for most of his moments. This is a truth that is justified by the fact that this is how we (spirit or consciousness) have created him. This being so, is it therefore not wise to see man through this lens? Yes?
Some say yes, and some do not agree.
Man creates meanness to satisfy his hunger for control. Indeed, when man’s hunger for control goes unsatisfied he/she will become mean. And this brings us to yet another question.
What constitutes control?
Ah, dear friends; now we come to the heart of the matter.
Control comes in many forms. It can be as insignificant as control over one’s belongings, one’s place in the pecking order, or an assumed sense of station.
Then, Dear Ones, it can be the overwhelming and debilitating sense of expectation. The expectation to receive the best; the expectation to believe in one’s abilities; the expectation that education places upon the sense of superiority. We could go on, Dear Hearts; however, any sense of expectation will bring an abundance of failure to achieve. When failure of achievement, whether true or false occurs, man’s sense of control flies out the window, so to speak, leaving him/her bereft of control; which, Dear Hearts, can manifest in a sense of lack of control, which can lead him/her to being mean and nasty.
Oh yes, Dear Ones; control, or lack of a sense of control can, and does lead many, indeed the majority to behave in a manner of nastiness and meanness.
How can this be circumnavigated?
This is an easy question with a simple answer.
Awareness. Yes, Dear Hearts; awareness of the preponderance of man to be mean and nasty will assist in the overcoming of this debilitating state.
For those subject to another’s meanness; this awareness of man’s futile efforts to gain control by this manner will assist the individual concerned to manoeuvre themselves out of the firing line, so to speak.
Control: A devastating aspect of man’s personality, which can and is overcome by awareness.
