Just #because#someone is an #asshole , does #not#mean#you#have to be one #too . At the same time don’t ever let someone sit on your head and do as they please . There is a nice way to go about it in stoping others from sitting on your head. You never want to stoop on a low level just because others are drowning in it on daily basis . Stay your high ground and be smart about it. Make your own decisions if you want to associate yourself with those kind of people. Once more, never stoop to their level.
