Have you ever encoutered someone who just sets you off? You dont know why, but you just cant stand this person. Cant put your finger on why you just dont like this person. You try not to interact but some how some way, you just get irrate just looking at them or even hearing their name. Well lately i have been collecting these folks. I dont know why i dont like em, its just something i cant put my finger on. Its not like they have done something bad to me that i am aware of. But in either case, when you see these folks its like you could just smack the crap outta them! Tell me your he/she sets me off!

Well after reading what you wrote I will probably set you off...because of what I am about to say. There is an immutable Law of Atraction that draws people together...and many times they come into our lives to teach us something about ourselves. What we often dislike in others...are the things we are denying about ourselves...the other person can be a mirror for something we need to address inwardly. Human beings notice in others...what they either do or do not like within their own mindsets. If I have a fixation about weight...I will compare my body shape to others. You know the old "thou dost protest too much" idea. We fixate on things that are in our awareness...and miss most everything else. Another example is what is called the 'pregnant lady syndrome.' Until a friend gets pregnant we may not be conscious of how many women are 'expecting.' Once it comes into our awareness that someone we know is having a baby...you see many more than ever before..on the mall, at parties...pregnant wormen everywhere. They were there before...but not on our radar screen. We had that happen when we bought a white car. Never noticed white cars before...now we have trouble finding ours in a parking lot. Awareness...what is life telling you? Maybe you are just feeling inwardly cranky, frustrated and fed up with things generally...and all the folks you've been attracting are just an outer mirror for something in your inner landscape. Or...maybe you have outgrown the people you've been collecting and you may need to find some people more attuned to where you want to be. Just a few persepctives...you can accept them or reject them...but I do hope you won't be so angry that you end up giving me a - just for stating my opnion.LOL Take breath, cool down, center...life is too short to hold on to all that anger. Hope you find some fun, laughter and inner peace soon...sounds like you could use it. Good luck!

I agree with you too. When I first bought my ascender a couple of years ago when they first came out. My fiance was beside himself saying things like, ooooh I've never seen this car etc etc. Meanwhile as we drive together we kept seeing ascenders here and there. This time I bought a Mitsubishi and he was also like, ooooooo I've never seen those. I've never even heard of the name etc etc. Meanwhile I was like, ok here we go again. I was like "dude, there's 1 down the street". lol. Anyways, I hear what you mean too. We do have to be aware of our surroundings and everything that goes with it so we can live an easier life.

No i actually am not offended and thought this was a great response i am probably going to mark it as best response! I agree with that you said. Although i dont see what i could have in common with these people, i am sure we do have some similarities. I can tell that one is just from jealousy but the other one, i just still cant put my finger on it! Also i do agree and have to admitt i am fusterated and fed up with everything. Thanks for this great response!

Wow...this best response really surprised me. I though you might be annoyed with me!LOL I admire your great capacity for self-honesty. The other side to this is that sometimes we all have cranky days...or weeks..and it happens to the best of us. Anyway that you very much for the best response. It is appreciated.

I hear ya! Although its not very proffessional of us to just display our dislike in the work place, we put on the smile and keep up the good fight of just getting through the day so we can make a paycheck!

People set me off too. For example these guys that live next door with the sports cars. They keep skidding tires and burning them until the nasty smoke gets through my 3rd floor windows. Meanwhile I'm asthmatic and I can't breathe because of all the polution. I had to use myinhaler 4 times already. It's like don't these kids have respect? I mean I understand they are young and energetic and want to have fun, but what's so fun about burning tires?? Don't they just ruin it and have to buy more? I hate it soooo much!

My step-father really sets me off. He is always getting on my case about getting out of college. I love going to college and I have a difficult time learning at times, so he needs to get off of his high horse and give me a break.

I am not out to make him proud. I am out to make myself proud. He can go walk off a cliff for all I care.

Oh yes, there was someone where I used to live like this. We just both grated on each other from our first meeting, and after that, we were better off avoiding each other entirely. The problem, of course, was that we traveled in the same social circles for a while, so it wasn't always easy to avoid each other. Eventually I moved on and started running with a different circle of friends, and successfully avoided this guy for the rest of the time I lived there. There was one near run-in, but that was averted.

Well its a good thing you got to move on! I use to have some pesky online folks bothering me on aol or was it yahoo. Anyhoo i blocked this person and they still got through. I finally got to shake em. But they use to always seem to be in the same chat room i was in.
