Human beings are predictable because:
- You can map out their priorities.
Priorities can be always being right, or keeping the peace, etc. The trick is to determine which comes in first place.
- You can map out their fears.
Two main types of fears include: the fear of love, or fear of loss.
- You can spot patterns in behaviours.
Unresolved emotional burdens and baggages are consistent, usually.
And always remember, if a person is still talking to you, or giving information related to you, or talking about you, it means you have leverage.
So always give space and/or leeway.
And most of the time, it is not “us” versus “them”, but “us + them” versus the situation. And who is the jerk who creates the situation? Neither us, nor them. 🙂
