Sia’s Question or Topic
Sia‘s question is about dealing with assholes, and if it is better to block them and move on, or comment or give in to their pettiness.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Gary’s favorite way to deal with assholes is with compassion. He believes that these people have their hearts are broken inside and that they’re projecting their pain.
Gary has never blocked anybody. He ignores 99% of the assholes and engages 1% with sweetness and kindness.
What happens afterward when he deals with the 1% is, 50% of people will come back and say sorry and that they were having a bad day, and others will double down, but then he’s out of it, because he already said what he has to say. This is what he did for the last 12 years.
