You can’t escape from difficult people. The very fact that there are differences between people means that tension will result. Compound that with the fact that you (as well as your “difficult person”) may be tired, stressed and on overload. When that happens, differences turn into difficulties. Now you’re in a downward spiral loop. You’re already stressed, and this difficult person has added to your stress, so you get more annoyed, angry and frustrated, which puts you on even more of a downward spiral. The key to breaking this cycle is to let go of this person.
Watch this video to learn how you can stop the energy drain of carrying around the difficult people you encounter. Learn how to put two easy steps into action to turn your downward spiral into an upward one.
Now you have two strategies that work: (1) Ask yourself “Am I ready to let this person go?” and (2) Replace negative feelings with positive ones. So, even if that difficult person never changes or apologies or acknowledges that they are difficult, you have put yourself on an upward spiral. You have left this person on the river bank as you go on to have a great day. Use these steps to stop being a victim to other people’s problematic behaviors…and let me know how it goes!
