Today’s Monday Mindset: How to Deal with Difficult People
We all experience difficult people at some point in time. Regardless of who that person is, it can really easily rob us of our joy and leave us feeling frustrated or even angry.
So, how do you deal with that difficult person?
It’s really simply this. See them as you see yourself, or as we should see ourselves – see them as a work in progress.
Everybody around you is a work in progress as well.
The perspective I’ve chosen to take with every difficult person I encounter is that they’re doing the best they can with what they know.
Some people just don’t know as much as you do. If they did, they would do better. Or if they had had your similar experiences in life, they would probably do better. But they haven’t, and they may have had difficult experiences in life that are causing them not to do better.
If you take on the perspective that they’re a work in progress and doing the best they can with what they know, it’ll free you.
It’ll prevent you from being robbed of your peace and joy, and you’ll be able to see them as they are – a work in progress, doing the best they can with what they know.
It’ll ease your frustrations and allow you to keep your peace and your joy. Live that out today.
