If you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep on getting what you’ve always got. So this week, do something completely different!
Try “the look” without making any comment. Perhaps completely ignoring the comment or the situation is what is in order. Or, for those of you that do typically avoid any confrontation with your difficult person, maybe you just need to say “I don’t agree with you” or something do that isn’t avoidance. (rolling your eyes does not count!)
I won’t guarantee that this will make your difficult person less difficult. I can guarantee that it will confuse them.
Don’t expect things to get better by doing the same thing over and over again.
