This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
Unless, you are some rare person who resides in a secluded fairy tale land, you have encountered some difficult people. We frequently have to deal with difficult people in our offices, Churches, during our day-to-day activities, and even in our homes sometimes. Difficult people are anyone that drains you, has negative energy, and simple just makes basic things hard. One of the most common characteristics of difficult people is that it’s impossible to make them truly happy. Trying to please a difficult person can cause you a tremendous amount of stress. We will all have to deal with them in one way or another, so we have to each find techniques to handle them. When it comes to difficult people, the number one rule is to not allow your joy to be stolen. Negative energy has a way of transferring from person to person. Difficult people will turn your good day upside down if you allow them to; DONT!!! It is also important, not to feed their negative energy either. Smile, and be as understanding as you can. They made need to steal some of your positive energy.
This week when you have to interact with someone whose being difficult or negative, just be polite, and hold on to your positivity. Sometimes, people can be a little too negative. When you engage these types of people get in and get out! Don’t stay around difficult people more than you have to. Create as much distance as possible, if you are unable to keep your peace, or handle their chaos!
“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudice, and motivated by pride and vanity. “
