Don't let the behaviour of others destroy your inner peace.
Leaving your life up to the behaviour of others is unthinkable. But that is exactly what you are doing if you continuously allow the behaviour of others to destroy your inner peace.
There is always going to be rude,
and inevitably, you will cross paths with them almost daily.
If you allow these people to continually destroy your inner peace, and keep your mind disturbed, angry, and frustrated, it will be hard to maintain your sanity, much less your inner peace.
Learn to live outside of the effects of other people's behaviour. Observe it, but do not internalize it, almost as if you are watching a play or a movie.
Do not let them get into your head.
Focus on your own behaviour, not on the behaviour of others.
Make sure that you are clear about the kind of life that you want to live,
the kind of person that you want to be,
then focus on being that person and living that kind of life.
Imagine that you have an invisible force field around you that prevents the behaviour of others to affect your mind.
At the same time, continue to keep your attention on keeping your own thoughts and behaviour in tune to who and what you want to be.
Baltasar Gracian stated,
"The man of principle never forgets what he is, because of what others are."
