#137 – How to deal with people you find difficult

Listen to the full episode:

We all have to deal with people we find difficult at times – whether it’s an argument at home, a challenging situation at work, or something else.

Often it feels like it would just be easier to ignore such people or work around them. But there is a better way you can try.

In this two-part series I sit down with Richard to talk about two spiritual ways you can deal with difficult people when these situations crop up.

This week, Richard shares a few simple spiritual practices anyone can use to deal with difficult people and even make a difference in the world!

    Thanks for an interesting discussion. I have a difficult aspect to my personality—due to internal pain and suffering. From a personal perspective I’ve found another way in dealing with difficult people and that is to minimise social contact with them. Especially the ones that spit venom in your face and use unkind words—on numerous occasions.

      Hi Chris, good to hear from. Gosh, I’m sorry to hear it. You do raise a good point in that we’re not saying you need to hang out with difficult people or seek them out – only that sometimes we all find ourselves in situations where dealing with difficult people is unavoidable, for whatever reasons, and when it is, we can use the tools Richard describes in those moments. Blessings, Darren
