at some point in our lives we are faced with challege of dealing difficult people. right? whether it be at work, play or family gathering, difficult peple are around us and can pop up out of no where and put us in predicaments that really challenge our emotional and logical intellect. the skill of dealing with difficult people is probably one of the most is important skill sets you will ever need to develop in life. what are many ways to deal with difficult people? how often do you exercise them?

I deal with quite a few 'difficult' people at work. Most of them do not intend to be difficult but they are sick, vulnerable and scared. I have to realise that their comments and actions are not intended as a personal attack on me, take a deep breath and try to find humour in the situation even when it might not seem entirely appropriate. Sometimes I just need to go away and rant to someone who isnt involved. Having a good relationship with colleagues is a major plus!! I am sure I have behaved in a 'difficult' manner plenty of times and other people have had to put up with me
