2 Tips To Deal With Someone You Hate
We've all been there...you can't stand someone to the point
that you hate them. The are overly happy and wanna be "close"
with you when all you want is to get far far away from them. The
phony plastic smile plastered on to their face that you can see
right through makes you ill. But how do you explain to someone
that you just don't want anything to do with them without being
rude and or using obscenities? There are 2 easy ways to try,
though no guarantee they will work.
Distance- They may come up to you with the whole mushy hug thing
when they see you. Don't like this, be distant with them. Step
back and shake hands or high five them. Having awful relatives
over for a dreaded visit? Avoid giving out personal information
about your life. This may not only give the person the message
that you'd rather not have them in your life, it can also help
cut down on the gossip mill.
A Cup of Tea- No, no, don't invite the person down for tea or
coffee or anything like that. Sometimes, but not always the best
approach is the direct approach. Not going up to the person and
telling them where you'd like them to go, but explaining in a
calm and nice tone that they aren't someone they would like to
be "close" with. They aren't your cup of tea. You don't have to
be rude and hateful even if you hate them with all your might
when explaining this. They may ask why so be prepared for a
sensitive answer because they may be emotional after.
