Do you remember your junior high years of school, when there was always that one girl who was so snotty, that you found yourself starring at her and thinking, how awful it must feel to have to act that way ALL OF THE TIME!
Most of our readers know that I am a substitute teacher. As I was in class today, many memories were brought to mind, as I watched one of these Snotty Bossy Pants. She demanded everyone’s attention, then was rude as she received the attention that she was seeking. I, again, caught myself thinking, how sad it must be to HAVE to act like this.
To not really have any true friends. To have to command people to do as you say, must make one feel weary and lonely. Many times, these behaviors are taught. Sometimes, the adult figures in these girls lives, have let them get away with this behavior for so long, that they don’t know how to deal with it. Watching this young girl today, reminded me of someone. Her mother! The mother of this child demands the same kind of attention from others. She always has a permanent scowl on her face. Never truly happy.
I’m sure someone from your past was brought to mind as you read this. Hopefully, it wasn’t yourself! LOL
Let’s try something together. Let’s try to show love, kindness, and mercy to these types of people when we come across them. Your kindness and smile may be just what they need to do an attitude check.
