How to Deal with an Irritable Person

How to deal with an irritable person. It’s hard but you have to try not to overstep your bounds.

Have you ever had to deal with an irritable person? Someone that just seemed to be agitated, annoyed, peevish and just snappy? They do have their reasons for being this way.

I’m sure most people have experienced it from time to time with practically anybody. It can happen to the best of people. Do you feel like you are sometimes walking on egg shells? That is very hard to deal with. I’ve been through it with different people and it’s hard. Sometimes you just do not know where you should step.

You know when someone starts yelling at you for no reason or for something so small, that something is brewing and you should at this time know that you need to step back and let them have their space. But our natural response also is “Don’t yell at me. I don’t like it.”

This is when you need to learn what bothers people and try your best not to do it and overstep your bounds. Learn to know what someone’s pet peeves are.

Could it be that they don’t like your wet nylons hanging from the shower? Or is it seeing a dirty dish in the sink? Or perhaps you want to mow the lawn later and your other half wants you to do it this minute.

This is when your other half also needs to know that not everything is going to go their way. They can’t expect you to do everything they want you to do and you can’t expect it of them as we all have our own opinions and we like to do somethings our own way.

Some people don’t mind if their clothing is in a heap and others like it nicely folded. Or sometimes the sheets have to have no wrinkles in them when they are put on the mattress. This one I honestly had to laugh at with my guy. He said he could feel it in his back if he’s sleeping on wrinkles! ha ha. I had joked about it to one of his family and she laughed too and thought it was quite funny.

We all have pet peeves. Maybe when some us wake up to the birds singing and love it, other’s might be wishing they would stop so they can get a little while longer of shut eye.

I can remember a camp neighbor saying that some mornings he wanted to come out and shoot the crows. Safe to say they were disturbing his sleep.

And when you do find that someone is irritable, cranky, not listening or any other foul mood that you kind of don’t like, try to shrug it off and see if it passes. Some people just can’t deal with things in the same way as others and find that this is the way they act it out.

We can’t all have a happy outlook. That would be me. I just try to look at the best out of everything and that all things will work itself out.

But I am also not immune to anger or hurt feelings on any level. I’m human. And the thing about me is that I’m stubborn if there is something I really don’t like

    It may just go beyond irritability. Some people become violent and aggressive, so trying to avoid them or brush it off may not be that easy. The one who receives the screams and yelling should find some comfort in the word or doing something they enjoy. There are people who can’t handle stress what so ever so they take their problems out on others.

    Try to find what works for the one who is irritated to help them snap out of it. For me, it is laughter. I love to laugh, it makes me feel good. When I was in school and having a bad day, I had a friend look at me and ask me who stuck my fur tree up your butt? It was something her parents would say to her and it always made me laugh. I still have bad days and I can rely on my friends to help me. A quick text asking for a laugh, someone always comes through for me.
