How to Deal with Frustrating People

    You’ll always get along with some people better than you get along with others. So what do you when you’re around a person who’s driving you absolutely nuts? Here are four tips that will help you deal with people who are frustrating you:

    • Be pleasant. Even when people say or do things that are frustrating to you, you must continue to demonstrate the love of God toward them. Remember, the Bible says:

    Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you (Ephesians 4:32.)

    • Hold people accountable for their actions. If someone is behaving in a way that negatively impacts you, it’s okay to address the situation. Be respectful, but firmly share with others how you expect to be treated.
    • Learn how to walk away. Sometimes the best way to deal with a person who’s frustrating you is to remove yourself from the situation. You don’t have to allow yourself to be mistreated! You CAN remove yourself from an aversive environment.
    • Stay prayed up! God will give you the strength to deal with ANY situation. Pray daily to ask God to strengthen you, and when things seem really trying, ask the Holy Spirit who lives inside of you for guidance. Remember, “Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always” (1 Chronicles 16:11.)
