Difficult people suck

Difficult People Suck

You're at work and you are surrounded by nasty attitudes all day. It's enough to make you go postal and you are a lamb of a person. Your boss snaps at you for no reason at all, while your co-workers are gossiping about you behind your back. You've had your share of backstabbers throughout your life and you are wondering when will these types of people stop popping up in your life. My dear, unfortunately they will continue to ride down your path with their venom for the rest of your life. You just have to learn how to handle these types of people when they do come into your life. be assertive and stand up for yourself. Instead of cowarding down and walking on eggshells around them. I personally can't stand being around people you can't satisfy or being around the ones that think you owe them something, and when you do give them something they
turn their noses up to it or they will let you know that what you gave them or have done for them isn't all that great or not such a big deal. They don't appreciate you and they don't think you are worthy enough for their gratefulness. People who constantly knock you or put you down and they don't give you praises for your accomplishments are people you should avoid being around. Give yourself a pat on the back and thank God for your accomplishments and celebrate by yourself or with those you know would be happy for you. When someone does not give you a compliment, praise you for something, congratulate or honor you for your hard work, don't feel sorry for yourself; feel sorry for them because they are the ones with a big problem and it could be jealousy. What jealousy tells me is that you are doing something right with your life. Take their jealousies as a compliment. Difficult people are also the ones who drive you nuts with their problems. They come and lay it all down in your lap like you don't have any of your own. They won't listen to any of your sound advice, it will go in one ear and out the other, yet when you tell them about something that is going on in your life they don't elaborate or they will quickly turn the spotlight back on themselves. It's all about them and your life pales in comparison to them. You may be hurting. However, you'll have to put your pain on hold to deal with theirs. They will still go out with this guy you warned them against or take the job you told them wouldn't pay well instead of taking the one you told them would pay more. In many cases a difficult person will always do the opposite of what you tell them even if they know it will harm or destroy their lives. Difficult people will never change. Nevertheless, all you can do is change the company you keep, speak your mind when it comes to defending yourself and your diginity. It is harder to deal with difficult people when they are family members, because you feel obligated to put up with their nonsense. However, it is all up to you when deciding whether or not you want to tell aunt Helen to go to hell for telling you that she knew you would never amount to anything. There is another kind of difficult person I detest and that it is the kind that only comes around when they want something from you, but the times when you are in need they make themselves unavailable. They will be your best buddy as long as you are giving them something. As soon as your car breaks down on highway 99 in the cold of night, getting in contact with your best buddy is a wasted effort. Your buddy has forgotten how you loaned him that very car on more than a dozen occasions and now your buddy is laying up in his comfortable house watching a football game while his new S.U.V sits in his garage and you are stranded. What's even more messed up is you were on your way over to his place to watch the game with him. Forget about being this persons best buddy for now on because it is one-sided and you will end up on the broken hearted end of the spectrum. There are now seven billion people in this world and settling for that one selfish friend makes no sense at all. You can shake those selfish people out of your life by surrounding yourself with people who have your best interest at heart. You can do it!

Lol @ this hub, you also forgot to mention when you do get around to putting them in their place they wanna act nice and try to get you to join their emotional roller coaster. It's always some shit with these types. If you ignore them thinking they will run away due to boredom they come harder. Then when you waste your time putting them in their place they pretend to act friendly as though you forgot all about the sleezy moron they have been all along. So sad, so sad, so sad. I don't try to understand "what is their reason for". It's not acceptable and I won't be tolerating them neither will I pray for them or kill them with kindness. Two of the most stupidest things anyone could do because we all know that no one sane loves abuse! You would think that although one may be miserable and a nobody at home they would enjoy breaking up the monotony at the workplace. But instead they readily bring their germs and spread it amongst others! For the love of God just let them have it......Only then will they come together!

P.S. You don't share anything that has worth with fools...Why because they are fools! They are clueless

Btw Difficult people should automatically be put in the "pay no attention to and avoid like the plague @ all cost box" What makes you think that they want things to run smoothly. The only reason they are sharing whatever information behaving as though they want advice is because you are all ears and you're sincere and concerned. In all essence they already know what they are going to do. They say everything happens for a reason as well as every dog has its day and last but not least you will meet your match. Those three Karma does not take lightly, well that's if you refuse to be there for them regardless of how they treat you

Yes, you're right about that... I know the only thing you can do is avoid them like they have the plague. Unfortunately I have one right now I need to avoid. I think hurting someone's feelings keeps us from it though. At this point I think it's best to start hurting feelings to save yourself from this aggravation.

affinity2010: pretty much...yes they do...but this will sound corny and simplistic but never ever let someone steal your day...never allow them to have that power of you...listen and move on.....been there , done that...it is not easy to do what i suggest but it will make you feel better in the long run...and the people who do that are basically unhappy unfortunates....

I will take your advice about moving from the difficult people in my life. They shouldn't be there.

Hey Affinity..... don't start the tit for tat game! If you are a great person with nothing but the best to offer whoever you consider a friend and they don't feel they need to do the same in return just beat it! Let them Be! Stroking your Ego by returning the favor puts you in a lower bracket than the one they are in. You are stooping low in order to?!?!? Exactly.... In order to mock nobdy and develope the same skils and mindst set of.....Nobody!

hi reeltaulk, No I'm not into that tit for tat crap. Life is too short to waste time playing games with someone who is difficult. My life is difficult enough all by itself and I don't need to deal with anymore difficult people. My problems are mine to solve and no one else's. You made a very good point not to stoop low.


reeltaulk 5 years ago

By all means....I have no problem with you solving your own problems. I left my two sense because I thought that was what the comment box is there for. The exact same reason I believe it's not always good to "share". It's all good though, I'm learning to keep my two sense to myself especially when concerning strangers.......CiaO

Reeltaulk, this wasn't anything personal against your comment, your comment was right on the money and I agree wholeheartedly. You gave superb advice... advice I am actually going to take concerning difficult folks I know. Thank you for your two cents, which I think it was worth more than two cent. Have a great Christmas!
