(Proverbs 22:24 KJV) Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:
Do you know anyone that always makes you walk on eggs? When they come into the room you take a breath, draw back, put on a mask, and disconnect your tongue. Here the character trait is anger. It could also be someone who is always playing the victim. It could be someone who takes anything you say, twists it and passes it on.
We are to avoid the “furious” (hot-tempered NASB) (2534) man. It is also a good idea to avoid other types that will do nothing but drag you down. If that means you miss the good parties, so be it. If it means you avoid certain coffee spots, make it happen. It may mean using the caller ID on your phone. We often have more control over what we face than we want to admit.
So? Some people deserve being alone. Even more, you don’t deserve their company.
