People can really stress you out! But giving them a break can actually be giving yourself a break. Don’t keep a running list of everything you dislike about someone. This only increases your stress when you need to be around them. Yes, I know they are annoying. Is there room to give them a little more acceptance? Start by telling yourself that you can find the kindness in your heart to treat them the same way you would like to be treated. Give it a try! You’ll be less stressed and feel better about yourself too.
