The Power to Break

If you were able to break the heart, or mind, of the most irritating/selfish/impossible/difficult person you knew, would you do it?

Would you break their heart? Would you break their mind? Would you change their life, and make them miserable, as they have made you?

I read a saying sometime last week about treating all people with respect – even those who treat you disrespectfully. Treating all with respect reflects on you, and if you treat some badly, regardless of how they treat you, that still reflects on you.

It is a difficult question, especially when faced with someone who is never held accountable, always turns events and situations around to suit themselves, and is never wrong.

Impossible people are never wrong.

I have the power to hurt. I have the power to hurt really bad. I initially thought the only way to have peace for myself was to say everything and move on, knowing full well the agonising words that I’d leave in that certain individuals mind, rotating around in their head for the rest of their lives.

Then I came to the conclusion that no matter what I said, as mentioned previously, they would turn it all around and make me the bad guy, they the victim. As per usual.

I have a real issue with accountability, and people being held responsible for their very hurtful words and actions, and by God this person has a million of them, and counting. I want to tell this person, and make them aware of their short-comings, if only so they open up their closed eyes and realise ‘hey I’m not perfect. I’m far from.’

But I know by doing so, I’ll be opening up a can of worms.

But by not doing so, the feelings and thoughts stew inside of me.

They need to be told… but at the same time, do I want to be that person… that person to break them?

I don’t want to be a person that breaks.
