I just read this article and find it very useful...may be you can also learn sth.... Never Argue With A Fool They Will Drag You Down To Their Level. Do you feel like every time you get involved in an argument, you have got to win? If you know that someone is wrong, and you have a solution, do you feel like, youve to argue with them until they embrace your point? You can try, but if the person youre arguing with is a fool, you will be hitting your head against a rock! It wont work. You dont need to win an argument. If someone doesnt want to listen to you, leave them be. If you tell them your point, and they dont want to listen, keep quiet and let it go! I admit there are some who need a little convincing to get your point, but there are those who are simply fools, who take pride in arguing; believing they are always right. Dont waste your time with those. Ill admit, there are some arguments that are constructive, when both parties are seeking a solution. Those kinds of arguments are rewarding. Both parties will be helping each other to come out with a better solution. But, in most cases, people argue for the sake of arguing. Arguing for the sake of arguing, is a waste of time. There are people in this world you just need to ignore if they behave or act in a foolish manner. They take pride in making other people angry. They enjoy winning arguments no matter how wrong or ignorant they might be. Some of them know which buttons to press to get you angry, and if you decide to argue with them, youll be heading towards their trap. Fools like to see you getting angry, swearing, speaking negative words or getting involved in a fight with them. They do what they do fully aware that theyre tickling you to get upset. Trying to argue with those guys, thinking they might get your point or understand how you do things, will not work. Dont try to prove anything to them. Your only solution is to watch, listen, observe and keep your mouth shut. If you feel tempted to answer to a fool, dont do it. Ignore them, even if you feel like screaming to them. Your silence will prevent you from converting to their cult of foolishness. If you argue with a fool, youll become a fool just like them, and youll make a fool of yourself! Some people, you just have to let them be. Let them behave the way they do, let them say whatever they want to say against you, let them go behind your back and say all those lies about you. You dont need to fight them. Thats exactly what they will be looking for from you. Dont even go around trying to justify yourself to the world about your innocence. Leave it like that.
