Difficult people are all around the world. You cannot avoid them always. They can be a part of your family, friends, neighbours or colleagues. Whether you like or not, but you have to face the task of dealing with some really difficult people throughout the life.
Encounter with difficult people leaves you tired, irritable, angry and afraid. You cannot wish them away even if you try very hard. They can affect your mental, physical and spiritual health. That is why it is utmost importance to understand them and chart out the roadmap to handle them.
Difficult people are often very insecure, scared or vulnerable themselves. They are not satisfied with their own life. Their scarcity of love, affection, self-respect, self-confidence makes them feed off your emotional and physical energy. So be compassionate about them. Do not allow them to make you a bad or bitter person, which generates a natural response towards them is to pay them back in their own coin.
Hence, always keep in mind that difficult people are all around. You have to guard your mental, physical and spiritual energy. You must learn to accept such people and their nature gracefully. Never make a futile attempt to change their behavior unless situations demand so. Take difficult people as an opportunity to strengthen your patience. Greet them nicely and carry on with your work.
