How To Deal With Difficult People

We all have difficult people in our lives.. and WE OURSLEVES can be the difficult person too!  How do we deal with them in a healthy way? It is all in how we respond!

I found this AH-MAZING blog from Mark Merrill with great tips on how to deal with the difficult people in our lives … WITH EGR!!  

“EGR it’s used to describe how to deal with people who are difficult. It stands for Extra Grace Required because the EGR person tries your patience, tests your social skills, and drains your energy. Everybody has EGRs in their lives. And, at times, everybody is an EGR to someone else.

You might be tempted to ask, “How can I avoid difficult people?” You can’t. Or “How can I fix them?” You won’t. The best question to ask is “How can I deal with difficult people well?” Why? Because your response is the only thing you can control. So here are some of the difficult types of people we all meet in our daily lives and how to handle them.”
