Just a Thought Sign-Up
Have you ever thought about the proper way to deal with difficult people? You know the ones: they're hard to get along with, they always seem to have issues and they also seem to cause you problems. All of us know or have at least one in our life. It could be your boss, your co-worker, an employee or family member. One way to help them is to befriend them. Talk with them and find out what happened in their lives to cause them to act in a way that affects others so adversely. Most of the time you'll find out they have been hurt or they walk in fear because of something that has happened to them. Being kind and understanding will help bridge the gap and put that person at ease so they won't always be so defensive. To fight back or argue with them will only feed their insecurities; it won't help them to relax and let their guard down. Most people I've met like this are hurting and one thing I know: hurting people hurt people. So let's try to understand where difficult people are coming from and help them.
Just a Thought. God bless.
