Your Petty Is Not Pretty

I can’t stand petty people. You know the ones that are impacted by the simplest things, in a negative way:

Petty
pet•ty/ˈpetē/Adjective
1. Of little importance; trivial.
2. (of behavior) Characterized by an undue concern for trivial matters, esp. in a small-minded or spiteful way


We have all had to deal with petty people. My last experience of dealing with a petty person was dealing with my emotional friend. Her pettiness was a clear result of unstableness and chaos within her life. Anything she heard just added to her stress, whether she’ll admit it or not. Anything that I did she'll have something negative to say. Misery loves company, now I know the true meaning of that quote. The way I deal with my petty friend  was to let her rant, say and do what she wanted to do, because nothing was going to appease her petty ass. If you are dealing with a petty person and this type of behavior gets on your nerves too much I’ll advise you to let go and go on a break with the petty muthafkka. I know that sounds like you will be a bad friend (or person), but hey it’s only so much a girl can take especially when dealing with a negative attitude.

I believe petty people have a lot of growing up to do. Influenced by the wrong people and/or ideas and tend to think that mixed messages are always negative and "cool". Petty people to to encourage ignorance as if they are making a rational statement. Sometimes, all they really want is attention. Or, sometimes, its more than that. Some petty people just tend to have a middle school state of mind. They are constantly trying to see others' faults and point out what others' aren't doing politically correct instead of sweeping on their own front porch. If you have a friend whose constantly being negative and not happy to see others happy, leave them by themselves, because in the end, they'll learn how to discover what real happiness really is.
