Disliking someone you barely know

CaoimheS (@caoimhesweeney) 8 years, 4 months ago

Now, I’m not one to form opinions of people very quickly, and I dislike people even less so but for some reason, there is one person whom I can’t warm to at all. I hear myself mumbling when she passes the house and getting irritated whenever I see her, and I barely know her, having spoke to her only once or twice. I actually can’t figure out why either so I’ve come here to see if any of ye have any ideas. I know some people say that you generally dislike people who remind you of something you dislike in yourself but I don’t think this is the case, and I’ve thought a good deal about it. So, anyone here have any ideas, or at least, have experienced the same?

“you generally dislike people who remind you of something you dislike in yourself”

That’s bullshit. Especially if you don’t know anything about someone. The truth is some people are used to bring others to their level, it’s their way of understanding things in their miserable comfort. But what may really bug you about your dislike is that people aren’t the same all the time and their struggle isn’t yours. “To each their own”, “We’re all one”. Well, the truth is it doesn’t matter if you dislike this person, it doesn’t give you any benefit in your life. In fact, it doesn’t matter so much that it’s not even entirely true.

There’s something not many people can see with clarity. Once you fall in a state of comparison, your judgment is only going to be based on everything you compare yourself with. Kick that shit out, don’t think you’re vulnerable when you do, contemplate subjectivism is also based on minds of people with shit for brains, make a difference just because you’re excited.

Sometimes it’s just because of immaturity and premature judgments. Sometimes its because you can pick up on their negativity through body language and other nonverbal cues.
