Dealing with People

Time and time again people tend to get on my nerves. People tend to get on all of our nerves and it is quite difficult to just leave the situation alone as many times we are told to do. Majority of the time, we don't always have the strength to just ignore the issues basically sitting right in front of our faces. We want to stand up for ourselves and tell people exactly the way we feel.

I am the type of person who just tries to ignore people when they anger me and upset me. But by ignoring them, I grow this built up anger inside of me and I need to vent.

Now, trust me, when you get to a point like this, it is nearly impossible not to say one word to the person. Sometimes not even to the person. Sometimes people post those little things on networking sites, not stating who exactly they're talking about, but saying it knowing the other person will see it, and knowing the other person will know it's about them.

So here's a friendly little tip to all those panicking about what they can possibly do to end this incessant nagging at their brain to do something about these rude peers. Don't fight fire with fire. In the end, the only person you are hurting is yourself. I am aware sometimes even talking it out isn't good enough. But just try to find the humor in such things and laugh about it to yourself because in the end, if this person is really bugging you so much, are they even really worth a second of your time? Laugh it off, vent in a letter you won't actually send, confide in a loved one, but don't sink down to the same level as someone you don't even like very much.
