Sometime, it may be our fate that we should suffer the indignities of an arrogant individual. We are sometimes blind sided from close individuals that we thought we knew. We question their motives, and yet we cannot understand their behavior. This may be a close friend, coworker or even your spouse.
At times you question your past actions, if you had caused this separation. Other times you fight back with word or actions that are more severe than the ones that were placed on you. But as time goes on, there is no return to the close relationship you once had. Usually there is much anger. Anger then proceeds to hate and grudge bearing between both parties. If you continue to fight, usually separation results whether it is at work or marriage. Co-existence would certainly be difficult.
How do we deal with this situation? Separation may be a remedy, but often the same type of person enters your life, and the cycle repeats (divorce again).
If we were to believe that these situations are our fate as explained by the law of cause and effect, we would be less inclined to have hostility toward the aggressor. We would be able to passively accept the negativity. With time, the relationship may become neutral, and compatible again.
