Dealing with difficult people can be somewhat challenging. I find it is just best to stay level headed when communicating with them. We can not avoid difficult people in our lives but how we react can make a huge difference. Also how we feel and think about difficult people can have a life changing effect. If someone promises you something and you have only just met them, kindly say no to the offer and that you would like to get to know them better first. It is a good way to weed out people with shallow promises and/or get angry quite often. Also think about your attitude, are you a difficult person yourself? Maybe not but if you concentrate more on the god people in your life you will fill your time up with those people and make it less likely to be around others that make you feel depressed.

Give love and kindness to them. It's hard to hate people who are loving you. Next, if they are angry, they are no longer thinking. Tell them you want a timeout until they have cooled off. You won't be able to reason with them until they do. About promises, no one can guaranty the actions of another, I keep this in mind when anyone promises me. In time, you will know who can be trusted. Lastly about lies. I confront people who lie to me. I let them know about the lie. It can bring about a few red faces but I receive fewer lies in the future.

I don't know, there are various ways in which you can handle difficult people. People do have different stles and tastes so dealing with different people will have different methods. Just look for their weak point and work out on that. After that work on the strong points. I'm sure you'll easily find a way to handle them once you get to know them.

It sounds to me like perhaps you put your trust in the hands of strangers. It is a good thing to remember that trust is earned. What are you doing to meet these kind of people every day? Maybe change something you are doing and see if you find a whole new group of people out there~

In starting my career in direct sales, I have had the opportunity to learn about a lot of different types of people. It has helped me a lot in that during the recent past, I thought that there were a lot of people that I found to be difficult, however, after learning about the different kinds of people, I've learned that people are in fact not really difficult, they just operate in a way that is different from the way that I operate. Now, I am able to meet a person and after talking with them for a short time, I can place them in a group type and am able to communicate with them on a better level. This is great not just in a sales situation, but also in life in general.

The thing to do is to ignore them. There's no use dealing with them since you know what they're up to. Besides there are a lot of people who deserve more of your attention. These type of people would only ruin your day. Cheers!
