In the world, there are going to be opportunities to lash out at people, especially people who rightfully deserve it. Unfair things happen. You encounter people who are willing to lie, steal and cheat to further their personal agenda. It's then that you have a choice.

Positivity is best

In life it's important to remain positive no matter what happens. If someone is bitter to you or refuses to do their job out of spite or malice, it's important that you do not come down to that person's level. You are your first concern and the best way to beat that person is just to be the awesome person that you are. If someone is behaving in an evil way, then you should pause and consider the best course of action.

Your words can either help you or hinder you. This is especially the case when dealing with a bully with a pulpit. The power is on their side, but you must remember that there is a universal force which governs that person and you must trust that everything will work out the way that it is supposed to. The clip below explains it pretty well. If you take out the race debate, the universal lesson is don't get upset when bad things happen to you. Just sit calmly and let it unfold. If it goes well with you, great. If it doesn't, then it will eventually go well. Remember everything that is happening is happening for you, not to you. Whoever has wronged you in the moment, is your teacher and they are teaching you a valuable lesson. Thank them for it.

Know your rights

Just because you're positive doesn't mean you have to be a pushover.

If you can defend yourself, know that there are nonviolent ways of addressing the issue. First, know your rights and verbally defend yourself. It's the right of every American citizen and with the state of American politics being the way that it is, there are going to be lots of opportunities for the world to quiz you on your knowledge of basic human rights. Meet the challenge and be prepared with an answer.

Stay calm, no pressure

It cannot be stressed enough that being calm is of the utmost importance. All day there are angry people trying to ruin your day because they're unhappy. They're having a bad day for a myriad of reasons. Ignore them. Why should you be upset because someone else is? Do you know how many things there are in life to be grateful about? Just getting up in the morning is the ultimate win. So do your work, complete your favorite activity and relax. It's just a ride and every experience is a test of who you are and what you're made of. What they do is a testament to their character. Prove yourself to be strong by embracing the pressure and treat every situation like it's no big deal.
