Basics of psychological protection.

These people are not so many, but even one of them is able to spoil our mood for a long time. The reasons may be very different. You can try to humiliate just because you have “not that” skin color or “not that” nationality; because you earn more than them, or because less; because you are sitting next to them in the subway car; because you live in this world … Envious people will not forgive your success, and spiteful critics will lose. It happens that the opportunity to assert themselves at your expense is not lost on those on whom you depend in one way or another: clerks on the executive committee, bosses, subordinates, teachers, students, doctors, plumbers …
Sometimes there can be no obvious reasons at all. Simply, there are people who feel good only when you feel bad. They are always present in any society: failed Fuhrers, hidden sadists, potential rippers, racists, and misanthrope. Social conditions or inborn cowardice do not allow them to realize their inclinations in the form of physical violence, and therefore they choose the least risky way – “only” words.
It is useless to take offense at them, re-educate, try to awaken in them conscience and compassion. They were born that way, they will die like that. These people are as if deprived of an ordinary soul, noble motives and feelings are not peculiar to them. Intentionally or unintentionally, they always bring evil to those who are in contact with them. They are alien gratitude, compassion, faith in good, morality and nobility. They have their own ethics, where only what is beneficial or pleasant to them is good.
Such people quickly forget those who love them. Gratitude and pity are not peculiar to them. Irresponsibility, pettiness, malice often underlie their nature. Marriage with these people is usually devoid of affection and sympathy. These are spoiled animals, not related creatures. They are the bearers of the barnyard morality. And they always bring suffering to people, but especially to those who love them. The one who has the misfortune to love such a person becomes especially defenseless in the face of psychic aggression …
… In general, it happens that a friend or stranger begins to speak very rudely towards you, or in some other way shows you his disregard. Sometimes this is done in the presence of your relatives, friends or employees in order to humiliate you more.
Elementary rudeness is not as harmless as it seems. This is not just a spoiled mood or wounded pride. Often, such people intuitively know how it is more painful to hit a person in an unprotected place, causing him suffering that does not subside over the years. Everything is used – and an ironic smile at the right moment, and a market cry:
Who does not know these skilled craftsmen, always finding the exact word or exact gesture, to confuse or humiliate the weaker one. After all, there are always defenseless creatures and those who are forced to depend on us: children, spouses, subordinates, prisoners, poor inhabitants of hospitals, schoolchildren, minor officials. And besides, there are after all still religious, ethnic and sexual groups that can always be the object of bullying by the representatives of the “majority” …
Primitive people, I think, it was easier. The man did not accumulate anger, resentment or hatred. Well, offended you, take a club and – on the head of the offender. And if he is stronger than you, then it remains to run away from him, headlong – also “detente”. Well, we live in a more or less civilized society. Often we do not have such an opportunity – to crack the offender on the head. It was only in Japan that they thought of putting in stuff the chief effigy, so that subordinates had the opportunity to put out on the effigy all that had accumulated, to save themselves from the burden of negative emotions. But we have something to do, citizens of a completely different country?
