Do you like dealing with people you dislike?

Forbes contributors' opinions are entirely their own. Nobody enjoys dealing with unpleasant people. It would make our lives so much simpler if we could just avoid all of the individuals we despise. But, as the saying goes, life happens. You might have to collaborate on a project with a troublesome coworker. Or maybe you've been assigned to help out a friend who has a problem child. Either way, here's how to deal with people you find unpleasant.

If you feel like you need to get along with someone, it's best to accept them for what they are and not try to change them. This is especially true if they act this way toward others too. There's no use in arguing with someone who thinks that making enemies is a good idea.

Of course, sometimes you may want to give up on something that isn't working out. If you feel like you can't be yourself around someone, then it's time to move on. Don't be afraid to tell them how you feel either. Maybe you won't agree on everything, but at least you know where they stand.

Finally, remember that people can only be responsible for themselves. No one deserves to be treated badly by others. Even if someone you know has done things that deserve punishment, that doesn't mean that they are a bad person overall. It's important to keep this in mind when trying to solve other people's problems.

What’s the best way to deal with someone you dislike?

If you have to interact with someone you despise on a regular basis, it may be beneficial to attempt to put a positive spin on how you view them, or to have less unfavorable preconceptions about them.

For example, if you believe that people who are rich are just lucky, and that those who are not will eventually get what's coming to them, then dealing with a billionaire would not be too difficult for you. You wouldn't feel bad when you lost money to him, because you'd assume that someday he'd lose money to others too. Also, since he's so rich, perhaps he could use some luck too!

On the other hand, if you already disliked him or her before beginning the interaction, then there's no point in trying to hide it. You should state your feelings outright, such as by saying "I don't like Richard Nixon," instead of using more indirect phrases such as "Everyone makes mistakes" or "It's better to keep ones opinions private."

The important thing is that you're honest with yourself and others. If you think that someone you dislike might benefit from a bit of good luck, then say so! Otherwise, they'll never know how you really feel about them.

How to deal with someone who dislikes you?

Avoid bringing up personal concerns or anything unrelated to the work at hand, since this is an invitation for bad interaction when dealing with someone who hates you. Be courteous to the offender. Numerous psychological studies show that it is quite difficult to detest someone who likes you. If nothing else, try not to take it personally.

Dealing with someone who hates you: don't engage them in conversation, even if they do so first. Maintain a distance between you and them by sitting as far away from them as possible. Do not make direct eye contact with them.

If the person who hates you is in a position of authority over you (such as your boss), then avoid any kind of conflict with them. It is best to keep a low profile and not stick out. You should also be careful about what you say in front of them since they might use it against you.

The easiest way to deal with someone who hates you is just to ignore them. Don't talk to them, don't look at them, and don't help them when they are struggling with something. This will cause them to go away on their own eventually.

Do you have to interact with people you dislike?

Interacting with people you don't like is an unpleasant but necessary aspect of life. Interacting with these folks frequently necessitates a high level of maturity and self-control. However, it's not advisable to interact with people you find offensive because they can cause you emotional harm or even physical injury.

The key here is to look at the situation in a reasonable manner and neither overreact nor underreact. If someone is being offensive, take them to task for it. If they're not, then ignore them. Don't get involved in their personal issues by arguing with them or asking them questions. Don't feed the troll either; just walk away from them.

People tend to be more pleasant when you ignore them so focus on what's important: interacting with those who are friendly and avoid bothering those who aren't.

How to get rid of people that hate you?

Interacting with individuals who despise you may be poisonous and bring a great deal of negativity into your life. It might be difficult to cut these individuals out of your life, but it will make you happier. Consider how they make you feel. If you find that you're angry or sad when you think about them, then you have their attention. Start now by deciding not to worry about what others think of you.

The more you care what others think of you, the less you'll enjoy your own company. You cannot change other people's opinions of you, but you can change how you react to them. Do not allow them to influence you against trying to improve your relationship with them.

If someone treats you badly because they dislike you, try to remember that they are unhappy too. Perhaps they had a bad experience with you at some point in time, but this does not mean that you should continue to get hurt by their actions. Everyone deserves a second chance, so give those that hate you this chance.

Finally, do not waste your time on people that do not deserve your attention. Find better things to do with your time than focus on getting rid of people that hate you. However, if you must go, then do it with both head and heart. Think positively of the individual and know that they must have good reasons for acting as they did.
