Difficult People Are Everywhere

Have you ever wondered why people are so sensitive? What makes them or us that way? Why do we let the things people say and do bother us so much? Is it really that important if they say or do something that we may not like to attack them verbally and physically? Will that fix the situation, well no it won’t. There will always be someone in our lives we either know or know of that just does not know how to interact with others.

This type of person tends to be very self conscious, very unsure of themselves; they feel like they need to be the center of attention because they feel inferior. People will do things just to get under your skin because they just don’t know how else to get attention. When you entertain this behavior you are feeding into them, enabling them to control how you react. When you allow them to make you angry or upset you are giving them control. Which is what they want they need to be in control, and they want your attention, children do this at times, they may misbehave to get attention because it may be the only time the parent pays attention to them.

Most of the time these may be people you are close to your family or very close friends. It may be hard to get away from them and not let it bother you. It is very hard to communicate to them that what they are doing in not appropriate. They are who they are and you can not change that. But you can control how you react to them how you handle the situation. You can be around this person and not let how they act affect you.

This may be difficult but over time you will learn how to handle them and they will figure out that they don’t have the control over you that they may have thought they did. There may come a time when you can effectively communicate to them how you feel about their behavior and they may understand and stop.

But whether they do or not you should remain firm and consistent in how you handle them and the situation. We all have our, I don’t really care, moments some people just have them more often then others. When you realize you are in control of the situation and not them you will let what ever they may do or say just roll right off you as if it were nothing.
