In this life we encounter all types of people. Some of them are lovely and bring all kinds of value and benefit to our lives. Others, however, can a bit more challenging to deal with. Negative and insensitive people can make our emotional lives extremely difficult. Their bites and barbs wound us, and can erode our self-esteem if we don’t take care to protect ourselves and our personal wellbeing.

Who are the insensitive people in your life? How does their behavior affect or derail the way in which you go about your day (and your happiness)?

Even our positive personality traits can come with a dark side, though. Being too agreeable, too open — these are attributes which can land you in trouble if you aren’t careful about the line you walk.

It’s crucial that you know your personality inside and out, and learn to embrace the reality of its light sides and dark sides. We are all different and we all look at the world in different ways.
