There is nothing worse than coming into contact with someone who is mean-spirited or jealous. Why does it seem to come from mostly women though? Some hide behind their jealousy with rude comments and disapproving stares. They verbally critique you and try to make you question yourself. You know what my advice to this type of woman is? Get Lost! The old saying goes, if you do not have anything nice to say, do not say it at all. Rather than feel insecure, I personally feel sorry for them because they are obviously not very happy with themselves. Sooner or later, the reason for their catty behavior will come out. Either that person will admit it to you or confide the reason to someone else.
When I worked in makeup, I had a girl constantly talk behind my back, put me down, and try to seclude me from the group of coworkers. One day, she even went so far as to tell me “beauty fades, you know”. I was so flabbergasted by her comment up until another coworker told me that she made that comment out of jealousy. Some people see things we do not necessarily see – for instance, when you think you are having a bad hair day and you end up getting a compliment on how great it looks that day. After work a few weeks later, that girl and I were walking out and I noticed her car wouldn’t start. She was out of gas and visibly upset. She could not get into contact with anyone and the mall was completely closed. I calmed her down, drove her to get gas and waited until her car started. Before driving away, she apologized for saying nasty things about me and that she appreciated my help. From that day on, she was very nice and only spoke truthfully about me. Never allow someone to get the best of you.
