9) Decompress & Talk
Once you’ve had an encounter, or a series of them, with a difficult person, you need to decompress from the overall tension and stress. It’s recommended to speak with someone about your experience. This can help you better analyze the situation. Often, it can help you decide whether you can continue with this difficult person, or if you need to completely remove them from your life. Speaking aloud can often reveal things about the relationship or situation that merely thinking to yourself might not. Talking with someone can bring things to the surface that, in the heat of the moment, may not have even occurred to you. If you have a good friend you can confide in, let them in on what’s happening. You may find they are happy you chose to tell them, and will be a great sounding board to sort your thoughts and feeling out.
