Some people will rage at having a disappointment, assume offence, experience failure or blame shift.
The more passive-aggressive rages can be seen in gaslighting (manipulating others by sowing seeds of doubt about their integrity and motives) and gossip.
Why gossip? Because it’s a form of character assassination where the intention is to harm another. The person who gossips is someone who doesn’t have the strength to be fully open or honest.
Don’t be mistaken here; a gossip does not deserve your mercy, they deserve contempt because their words are designed to hurt others while simultaneously manipulating you into co-operating with their agenda.
