The top reasons that people can annoy or irritate you
Being around people you don't like is hard. You're always going to have certain instances in your life where you live, work or have friends and family that annoy you. Trying to find ways to cope with this can be difficult .
It could be an acquaintance of a friend, your friends partner, a sibling, a parent or someone at work that is constantly annoying you. It can be very frustrating when you have to bite your tongue in those awkward situations that you absolutely hate but can't get away from.
If it's family members it can be a lot harder to get away from. But if it's toxic friends, then you can eventually choose to stop having them in your life.
In reality what you really want to do is just shout out STOP!

This could be at work where you have to work with annoying co-workers.

It might be a close friends house party where you detest the room mates or their partner.

Sometimes I think some people are just born with that gene which is called "Annoying" and they live to make your life awkward.

How to deal with annoying co workers
There are lots of things you can do to reduce the stress that these situations might cause you.
If it relates to work, then you could find excuses to stop attending functions where you need to be around the annoying people.
If it's a work colleagues, try to change departments or move to another desk further away from them. That way the only time you see them would be when you are arriving and leaving work.
If it's a boss, then you either need to stand up to them or find a way to work around the issues they have with you. Sometimes this will involve being the yes person. That means you listen, you express interest, you don't complain about them to work colleagues, (just friends), and finally you try to get promoted from that department as soon as possible
Does your family annoy you?
How to cope with an annoying family members
If it revolves around family, then it can be harder to get out of those annoying situations. There are some family events like weddings, christening and funerals you will have to attend.
Get out of them....
To get out off any type of family event you will need to come up with clever explanations.
You might be able to get out of dinner parties or birthday parties by deciding to book a romantic weekend away with your own partner on the week of the party.
You can get out of attending events far away where you know those people that irritate you will be attending also by saying that you have work commitments.
Never engage any of the family members that annoy you in conversation. If you can stay as far away from them as possible. You'll get those irritating question about your personal life that you don't want to answer. So either arrive late to avoid having to mingle, or take up the task of 5 minutes conversations with people.
How to cope with annoying friends
When friends are involves you have to be careful. Just because you don't like lady x doesn't mean the rest of the guys and girls don't.
What you might think of being stuck-up, others might see as being out going.
If you have to be around an annoying friend of yours then either reduce the time you are in their company or avoid going out on the same night that they do.
Try not to engage in long conversations with them.
Don't complain about them to others in the group or it could lead to you being labelled as the troublemaker.
If you must be in the same group as them, try to pick neutral things to talk about.
Learning to live and be around people who annoy you is difficult.
