Crazy People

What to do you do when you are faced with someone who doesn’t see eye to eye with you? What do you do when you end up dealing with someone that not only argues with you but doesn’t respond to logic as most people know it?

I had the great fortune to recently deal with someone like this. And it makes me mad. It makes me mad that I can discuss and discuss and eventually, argue,  and this person won’t respond the way I want them too or even the way that most of society would understand. And then, on top if it, they can say whatever they want to me and I have to let it go because it won’t be productive even if I respond.

What do you do? What can you do?

What I’ve learned is that people that are crazy are just that. Crazy. Unfortunately, we don’t always know their background or their circumstances so it’s hard to say why they are like that. I’m assuming there is a reason for it somewhere in their past or present. We don’t always get to know why. The best thing we can do is to distance ourselves from those people and hope that we can keep our sanity. We can only try to be the better person and do what’s right for us.

I’ve been in that countless cycle of arguments trying to solve something when both sides have different types of reasoning methods. It doesn’t work. Sometimes, removing yourself from the situation or if you have to be in that situation, just being civil and leaving it at that, is the best way to solve the problem.

There will always be people that we all encounter that are hard for us to deal with. We have to find a way to deal with it and find our peace with the situation.

    Fantastic article. Deal with it a lot everyday too. I agree with your solution as well.

    By the way, I really hope you’re not talking about me 😉 but if you are, I’m not planning to change 😛

      Haha. No, I’m not talking about you. And this isn’t about the people that I maybe don’t get along with or don’t hang out with in general. This is specifically about those who we try to understand and we hope understand us but for some reason, lack the logical ability to understand someone else’s point of view. As long as I can understand a point of view, I think that it’s okay if we all don’t get along. But when someone blames me for something that really had no grounds for blame (in multiple people’s opinions), then I start wondering what they are thinking.
