7) Don’t Take It Personally
This may be one of the most difficult things to do. It’s especially true if you are dealing with a difficult person in business or the work place, such as a boss. Some people are just miserable on their own, and their misery seems to spill over to those around them. This is not your fault. So, don’t take it personally. Try to let whatever the difficult person is saying to you pass through you like the wind through a screen. It may take some practice to be successful at doing this, especially if it’s someone you see on a regular basis. It’s also best to try not to smile or laugh during their tirade. Some people do laugh out of nervousness. It could be taken as mockery and anger them further. It could also be construed as a sign of disrespect.
