No matter how hard you try to be understanding and respectful of others, at some point you will be confronted with people you do not like. It can be a real pain in the neck to deal with these people, but if you act with courtesy and maintain a constructive attitude, you will probably get past it without any serious troubles.
When you deal with someone you do not like, rely on reason and logic rather than relying on emotions. You can prevent things from turning worse by deciding to make the best of a situation, as things are more likely to turn out worse if you let everything develop naturally.
Focus on thinking positively and stay calm, when you interact with people you do not like; have control over your feelings and thoughts. Quickly pull yourself out, if your mood is turning sour to avoid turning the situation into a serious problem.
Give yourself a ‘cool down’ period to have the chance to analyze what the other person said or did that makes you so upset and figure out the best approach to handle them.
Ask yourself why you do not like these people and analyze your feelings, you might find out that the problem lies entirely on your shoulders. Analyze the reason for your dislike by asking yourself specific questions such as “Is my dislike for this person a result of a prejudice I have against a large group of people?”
Even if you want to be an understanding person, it is ok to admit to things that make you unhappy or uncomfortable. Setting boundaries can help you defuse a situation before you lose your cool and things get worse. You are entitled to take a stand and protect your personal space, if anyone tries to invade it. The more willing you are to maintain the boundaries, the less chance there is to clash with the person you are at odds with.
