How to Handle Difficult People in Your Life

Have you ever experienced those moments when you meet someone who is impossible to deal with? You know, the kind who aren’t cooperative, who refuse to see things from another perspective other than theirs or who are inconsiderate. They come in so many forms that are unbearable. No matter how nice you try to be with them, it’s so frustrating trying to get along with them.

I’ve encountered a lot of difficult people in my life. At first I tried to avoid them as much as I could but hiding from them didn’t make them go away. Instead I devised new methods to handle difficult people. Here are some tips you’ll find helpful.

 

  1. Rise above their behaviour

If you’ve met a difficult person, chances are that you have tried to reason with them. But in the end, you realize that their behaviour beats all reason. Don’t react to their irrational behaviour with irritation, frustration or aggression. It’s not worth it and it only makes the situation worse.

What you should do is to not partake in their irrational behaviour. Don’t react to it, rationalize it or beat them at their game. And no matter how annoying their behaviour is don’t snap back. Just let them be.

 

  1. Set boundaries with everyone especially difficult people

Difficult people try to assert themselves on others for some strange reason. If you give in, believe me they will continue to with the crazy behaviour.  The way to deal with this is to set healthy boundaries between you and that person.

When they try to assert themselves on you, you have to draw the line and tell them that they can’t treat you that way, and then move on. Sometimes you just have to put your foot down otherwise their irritable behaviour is going to continue.

  1. See through their drama

Difficult people don’t act difficult just because they decided to. There’s some underlying reason behind their behaviour. Sadly, difficult people don’t know how to communicate what they want to others. So they create drama, because that’s the only way they know how to communicate with others.

When you look at the situation in this light, it makes you feel compassion towards them. So before you react badly, make sure you pause for a few minutes to think about this. As you show compassion and show them that there is a better way they can communicate their wants clearly, then they would change.

 

  1. Don’t take it personally

Facing difficult people can make you feel horrible with yourself, lower your self-esteem and feel guilty for being resentful towards them. All this affects your mood and attitude to others. Their behaviour is not directed at making you feel bad but rather they don’t know any other way to communicate with others.

For the sake of your peace of mind, don’t take what they do personally. Focus on achieving your goals and living your amazing life. When you allow their annoying behaviour to get to your nerves, it distorts your day and makes your relationship with others go sour.

It is a Fashion Blogger shopping dream.

The oversized cardigan and the blue long sleeve sweater are new wardrobe additions from BlackBetty. I really both pieces especially the oversized cardigan. The design is beauty and colours on the cardigan are so pretty. This blue sweater is a wardrobe essential which I like because they always come in handy, especially on lazy fashion days.

Preserving Memories Through Photography

When I was younger, I hated having my pictures taken. It just felt weird. I was like this until I got into university for my first degree. Anyone that knew me well enough then knew I hated taking photographs with me in it. I gradually grew out of this and started loving photography. Now that I think of it, I think it’s all down to confidence. I didn’t feel confident enough to pose and take a photo. I felt I never looked good in them, so I avoided photography completely. Which is so weird to think of now as I am a blogger and take photographs almost everyday.

I love that my kids like taking pictures. They have loved the camera right from when they were babies. They are always camera ready. And they never get tired of taking selfies on any phone they can lay their little hands on. That could be because they are forever watching me taking photos, so they are mirroring that act right back. Which is why we have to be cautious of how we live our lives around our children because they are paying attention.

CanvasChamp

I recently came across CanvasChamp online and I got this canvas done. For those who have never heard of CanvasChamp, they offer premium quality Canvas Prints at the lowest price in the UK. It is a great brand with the most amazing service. I found their website very easy to navigate. Placing this order was very straightforward.

I have been dying to get some my pictures printed and some framed. So I was very happy to get my hands on some CanvasChamp Canvas Prints to decorate the house and preserve some memories. I got this Canvas Print some days ago, and it will be going into the kids room. Preserving memories through photography is definitely the way to go. Which is why I plan to get some more Canvas Prints.

The twins were few days old in this photo. We took it at the hospital during one of their many snoozes. I love the shot a lot. They look like they are having a proper conversation. It is such a cute photograph.

One thing I love about being a blogger is the fact that I get to take lots of pictures. Discovering CanvasChamp has been a blessing because their prints are super affordable. And they deliver them very quickly too, which is great customer service. I know I will be using their service again and again.
