How Do You Deal With Irritating People?

What do you when you get pissed off with someone else? I'm a person who doesn't talk a lot and I usually avoid getting into argument with anyone. I have this co-worker I get pissed off most of the time. I easily get irritated with her but I couldn't tell her straight that her behavior bothers me. I do not want to dwell on my negative emotions so I'm doing my best to ignore her behavior and instead focus on her positive aspect. I just want to know the best way to deal with her because I want to be a better person. I do not want to be always irritated or angry with somebody else especially with someone I work with all the time.

I am the same way. I don't talk much unless I am spoken to first or it's necessary like at a meeting. If someone annoys me, I just ignore that person.

You're right @zarlamain. It's better to ignore the person who irritates you, but sometime I just couldn't stop myself from getting irritated. I don't know. Maybe it's just me not knowing how to control my negative emotions. :) thanks for the comment

@zarlamain but I what I wanted to avoid is the irritation that I feel whenever she does something I do not like. She evokes negative emotions in me which I try to avoid all the time. I wanted to focus on the positive side of life. Life is too short to get irritated with anyone. So, I think the problem lies in me. :D I should not get affected by her. I should stay positive no matter what.

Good thing you can still be civil with her despite the fact that she annoys you always . I can say that you are have a good control of your emotions. I bet, if that is my situation , i would avoid the person , so i won't be stressed whenever i see her .

Yes, it's easy to avoid her if I'm not working with her everyday but my work requires that I should be with her most of the time. Lucky me...

I just let them do what they are doing. By the way, I am not included in thier business. I just keep quiet.

Yes, the most effective way is to ignore and believe she does not exist. But what if you can't avoid that person because her table is just beside and you bump into her everyday?

Ignore them totally. Pretend that they don't exist at all.

I am also one who tries to avoid conflict so I would probably ignore her as much as I could.

Good for you @simone10. It's always easier to avoid conflict than being part of it.

If you do not feel you can confront her about it then I would say ignoring her is the best thing.

I think you can ignore her and keep your distance. What is she doing that is ignoring?
