I'm trying to avoid those people who are always creating trouble ,but these people are not happy unless you are miserable like them. I try to avoid these people ,but sometimes they do so many bad things that is hard to keep ignoring. Do you think is best to confront others for their wrong doings or just keep ignoring them?

If thier ppl in your real life then you'd probably want to just keep working hard at putting distance between you and them. Eventually they will move on. If they are ppl online than you could just stop talking to them all together. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I have dealt with several people like this but am dealing with one right now that goes over the top. Sometimes I believe it is worth trying to confront them about everything. The problem though is that sometimes this backlashes. No matter what you say they will always somehow twist it back onto you. Many times though, it's just better to ignore them. That's about all you can do.

Yes, these people are so narrow minded that even if you confront them is hard to get rid of them ,so comfrontation might not be the answer at times ,so is best to avoid them as much as possible.

I know where you are coming from. I know someone pretty personally that reacts the same way. If they have a bad day, they have to make sure that everyone else has a bad day, and if you are not miserable, they will try their hardest. I personally just leave them do what they want, and I just ignore them. I don't let them get to me, because I don't see the point in paying attention to them and giving into what their ultimate goal is. To make sure everyone else pays and is as miserable as they are. If I don't let them get to me, then they have not won.

Yes, you are right, their ultimate goal is to bother you and make your life miserable too ,so is best to avoid them ,but sometimes is important to put a stop on them too.

Just like you, I always try to avoid people who create trouble. Yes, you are right, they are never happy unless you are miserable like them. This is the reason why I avoid them, so they never see that I am happy and content with my life while they are miserable. Poor things. However, the moment they do anything to cause trouble for me and my family, I definitely confront them about it. I like keeping my peace, and so I avoid exposing myself to trouble. But when they seek me to cause trouble, well, I just fight to defend myself and my loved ones, and teach that trouble-maker a lesson not to get in my way.

Yes, you are right sometimes you need to comfront them because if not they think that they can destroy you and bother you everytime they feel like it.
