How to deal with Vindictive People


A vindictive person is someone who seeks vengeance on someone for a perceived wrong they’ve had to suffer at the hands of someone else.

Proverbs 24:28-29

Don’t testify against your neighbor without cause; don’t lie about them. And don’t say, “Now I can pay them back for what they’ve done to me! I’ll get even with them.”

  1. Thank you for the reminder that sometimes you just need to walk away from people like this.

    It’s hard I know, but really it’s not worth the heartache that comes with people who are destined to destroy you. It’s a character trait I believe most do not want to be associated with.
    Great post!!

  5. have met these people, though i recognized them really late, but i did not allowed it to be too late, and ever since, just like you said, started avoiding them like plague my life became blissful, you are absolutely honest in your suggestions and best!

    I love this post, Cranston, and completely agree with you! If I might share with you that my first book, Less Stress Business: A Guide for Hiring, Coaching, and Leading Great Employees is about 3 weeks from publication and chapter 7 focuses on just this topic. It is titled: Confront Dysfunction so Your Team can Function. We are definitely on the same wavelength here!
