Difficult people can be found anywhere and everywhere. There are always a few people around you who might always intend to oppose you, piss you off or simple hate you with or without reason. Do not feel extremely taxed with the arrival of such situations and people in your life. Problems are a part and parcel of each individual’s life.
They always leave you a richer person when you learn how to tackle them. Rather as someone has rightly said that “the biggest problem in life is to have no problems at all”.
Remember, if someone has negative outlook, it is their problem not yours. Their negativity is a reflection of their inner state of mind. A sick and unhappy individual will always want the sickness and unhappiness to prevail around him in others by taking revenge from the whole world for his set of problems.
Do not be hurt by what such people might comment. It is not always necessary to answer back each and every jab of theirs. Your silence is equivalent to ridiculing them because it signals that you don’t even consider them worthy of your reactions. Box them in their face by sometimes ignoring them softly or by being sweet and intelligent in their face. Maintain your respect and move on. Discuss with them when the situation is calm about their reasons for such behavior and try to cooperate a little.
If these people cannot be rectified, avoid thinking and talking to such people entirely. It is neither important nor possible to please each and every person around you. You can always choose the set of people you want to be with, i.e., those who are positive, peaceful, encouraging and loving. They will give you positivity and zeal to live happily.
It is not important to let everyone know of the hidden resentments and grudges between you and such people. After all you have many other tasks to do than let everyone know how much you hate a person and why. Such negative discussions will not only bring your problem in the limelight and make you restless about them all the more. Detour the discussion if it somehow arises by softly brushing its direction.
