I was out tonight and had a little incident where this dude was disrespecting me. Normally I have a zero tolerance policy towards disrespect but the guy didnt seem like he was trying to put me down, he seemed like an idiot who was blindly disrespecting because he doesnt understand respect so I held back, but it got me thinking, why do people disrespect? Are people that fuckin stupid that they have to get fucked up to see that being disrespectful is totally unecessary? Long time ago, I thought people disrespected because they are stronger, but now I see its because of weakness. Could it also be because of stupidity? What do you guys think?

At times someone does something inconsiderate or disrespectful and yeah I think about it, and then other times someone tries to tool me, whatever and its not even on my radar.  I guess it depends upon me and where I am at the moment.  It apparently has something to do with the value you have of yourself versus the implied value you're giving someone who is only passing by...weird we'd even give them a second thought.

Some do it to ping and find out where they stand, others do it for excitement, others do it because it makes them feel powerful and significant, others are doing it to face their fears, others do it as a joke and connect with people that way and some do it to bring you up. Hell it could be anything.

Different people = different backgrounds / experiences  / culture / values / headspace / mind patterns

I dunno dude this is a reason I wrote the post me against the world I beleive you commented on??

I think I would have killed several people by now if it wasn't for the law

I nearly went to prison for jumping and stamping on a dudes head out side a night club about 2 years ago it was on camera. As I watched the video in court I was truly sorry I got caught. But still hoped that the blows gave him some long term damage

Why?  Because of some perceived insult?  How very small of you.

I dunno they say the bigger man would walk away, but I'd rather just smash your face. The most successful country's on the world were built on slavery and death. There is a war going on right now for fuck sake, so you telling me it's morally wrong to slap some punk is stupid to me

After doing this for ten years I have come to the conclusion that "why" DOESNT MATTER. All that matters is "how" you deal with it.

This is where unreactive comes into the picture. If you ignore him, he will only get angry, and then, you are winning.

He cannot reach you. Now, the instructors were called out in a thread I posted over a year or so ago on this topic.

What was established was that, you are not a statue so, still draw the line, and of course, protect yourself.

Do not let someone get in your way or be physically or verbally abusive. Still, do not be a fagot.

Before getting into a physical altercation and fighting some bloke, you can grab a bouncer, let him escort the cunt out of the venue, and you can go pull some SMOKE SHOWs.

Like the Vince quote I posted in another thread, people tend to project their insecurities and flaws on others.

They seek a reaction out of you to get attention. Some women will do the very thing. The underlying theme is insecurities and low self esteem.

Everyone struggles in this regard. Everyone has issues and things to work on.

Draw the line. If you have a mate or two who happens to cock block you or be embarrassing, refrain from chilling with him when out to pull.
