Tips on how to deal with miserable people.
Do you feel like you are beating your head against a brick wall when dealing with certain people? I am sure that this may be more common than one would think. All too often we are put into situations with others, either by our own choice or by some outside circumstance which can leave us feeling disrespected, hated, not welcome, or just plain miserable ourselves. We want to throw our arms in the air and hide rather than deal with these people. How do you deal with miserable people?
To deal with miserable people one must first understand why these people are miserable in the first place. Their reason for the way they treat you the way they do may not be your fault. In other words it may not have any bearing on anything you have said or done. You also need to realize that you can not control someone else’s actions, you can only control your own.

The next time you are dealing with miserable people remember the above quote. If the above is true and a miserable person is always looking for something or someone to scorn it may just be that you are their closest target. Stop letting yourself be drawn into their game. If you feel the need to retaliate-STOP. You may need to walk away or refuse to spend any more time with these people. Another good thing to remember is that we may not like or be liked by everybody we meet or deal with and this is ok. It is also alright to stay away from someone who is treating us badly or who makes us feel miserable ourselves.
