Secrets to Dealing With Difficult People

Have you ever had to deal with a difficult person in your life whom made you feel really bad or even cry? I feel that we all have. Difficult people exist everywhere, from our own homes, to our jobs, to our classmates, neighbors, teachers, and customers we have to daily deal with. As patient as we may be, these people can push our buttons to where sometimes we may want to explode!

 

However, as believers we know that we cannot blow up or get affected by these people. We know that we must be able to keep our cool at all times insha’Allaah, as that is what the Prophet (Sallahi Alihee Wa Sallam) taught us!

 

When we are being tested I have learned the best things to say are many one of my favorite sayings is….. “Qaddar Allahu masha’a fa’ala.”- “Allaah has decreed and He does what He wills.” [Sahih Muslim]

 

Some of the different types of difficult personalities we will discuss are:

  • The Rulers
    These people will get their way by bullying and intimidating others. They’re constantly demanding and very critical.
  • The Complainers
    These people would rather complain about everything than to find the answers for it.
  • Those Who Agree to Everything
    These people have good hearts, and agree to any commitment. However, they can barely deliver when the time arrives for they are over committed.
  • Those Who Are Inflexible
    These people will always find the negative of a situation and why it cannot work.
  • The Quiet Ones
    These people just go for the ride. They don’t say much either way.
  • Those Who Act Like They Know-It-All
    These are one of the hardest groups to talk with. They are usually arrogant. Most of these people have an opinion about everything.
