How to stay mentally strong when dealing with difficult personality types.

In our day-to-day life, we will come across a wide range of personality types. There are those who will be easy to deal with and those that will be difficult. The difficult ones are often the ones that take a lot more energy and patience.

There is a common misconception that one should always smile when dealing with difficult personalities. This may work in the short term but it is not sustainable in the long run. What you can do instead is find a way to detach from the situation and find peace within yourself. Then you can return to the situation with renewed energy and patience without getting mentally exhausted as quickly as before.

We all know that working with difficult personalities can be extremely challenging. There is no one-size-fits-all solution that will work for everyone, but here are some tips that might help you stay mentally strong in the face of a negative and difficult personality:

First and foremost, recognizing your mental health is important and you should take care of it. Practice mindfulness, take short walks outside, drink lots of water and give yourself time to do things you enjoy. If your job starts to feel like a chore, think about why it is so hard for you and if there is anything you can do to prepare better for it.

Next, if someone is being rude or just generally unhelpful with your requests or ideas, keep in mind that they might not even be aware they are rude. I know though hard to believe some people have no clue how rude they are because no one has told them. 

It is also said that hurt people hurt people, so sometimes the meanest people are the ones who are suffering the most. Not that you should let everything slide but it is good to know that whole story.

How to stay mentally strong when dealing with difficult personality types.

Here are four ways that can help you stay mentally strong when dealing with difficult personality types:

- Have a plan for how to handle awkward interactions
