6) Put Some Space Between

If you find yourself dealing with a difficult person who simply won’t back down, then put some space in between. This is especially true for personal relationships. If you find yourself bearing the brunt of their anger and frustration, you need to give them and yourself some space. Back away quietly. Avoid answering their calls or showing up some place you know they’ll be. Silence can in fact be golden, as the saying goes. Sometimes merely by being absent, you are showing them you are not going to participate in their difficulty. This is especially true if that person has gotten so into the habit of taking their frustration out on you, it’s become routine. By simply disappearing for a while, you may give them pause for thought. Don’t be so quick to jump when they call you. Give them some time to think about their behavior towards you.
