“How people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours.”—Wayne Dyer
What is the choice available to manage those characters? One choice can be to confront with them and always prove that you are right. This choice is like adding fuel to fire as resistance always back firing. In this process, either you lose your peace of mind or your productivity or lose track of growth as you always think how to make others wrong.
Another choice can be to make your mind to accept them as such and keep moving on your growth activities. Learn from the nature that anything is cyclic and things will work out in your favor soon. Learn from your past that tough times never lasts forever and how you managed similar situations.
In essence, your peace of mind is more important than anything else. That depends on the choice of battle you choose!!
