Dealing With Difficult People In Your Life

HashFlare

When coming face to face with a difficult or irrational person, most likely anger is the main subject matter here. If it takes two hands to clap, then it takes one to step back and let the anger and abuse bounce off. Imagine that the abuse hurl at you as a parcel in the mail, don’t accept it and it will be returned to the sender. The anger belongs to the opposite person, it should, therefore, remain there.

Many a times, a quarrel or a fight started when one reacts to the other person’s anger. It is very difficult to remain calm when anger usually spews personal attacks. But if you are very focus on not letting your moods be swayed by outside factors, then it will be easier to step back from all the insanity and stay detached mentally.

Only when one is in a tranquil state unaffected by external factors, positive or otherwise, can one plot the next move.

So what is the next move? Onwards, we would want to look at how to deal with it.

Assuming you are a human with a nice balance of pride and ego, having to deal with external negativity must be a real pain in the side. It is not to say there is a sure way of guaranteeing that what you choose to do will be a permanent and surefire solution. As with dealing with human relationship, it is all trial and error. And if you don’t succeed, there is always next lifetime to try again.

Remove. Sounds extreme? To protect one self is an animal instinct, and we are living in the animal kingdom. However, I am not talking about murder, but rather what you can do to remove the negativity cause from your life. Move away? Leave a job? End a relationship?

Confront. If you have enough leverage, negotiate. State the terms, voice your discomfort, then draw the line and dare the other person to cross it. Many bullies are cowards and back down from a real challenge. You win. But if this doesn’t work, at least you can make a fast decision to cut the losses.

Train. Some nasty behaviors stemmed from lack of emotional control. Adults are just as guilty as children when it comes to being incapable of expressing themselves. In this case, it is you who will need to “potty-train” by doling out “punishments” and “rewards” in accordance to the other person’s good and bad behaviors.

Forgive. If the opposite party is guilty of nasty behavior, it would actually look better on us not to stoop to their level. Forgive and move on may be the best advice yet. But be sincere about it, or else anguish may turn to hate and you will join the ranks of the undesirables.

Let’s be honest here for a minute. If you choose to bear with bullies in your life, there must be a good reason. Weigh that reason, was it a decision made because you wanted something in life and having to bear with abuse is part of the package? If it is, then you shouldn’t be complaining.

If you think dealing with difficult people on a professional level is hard, let’s talk about dealing with those you have close relationships with. Believe me, not every parent is a child’s best friend, and not every child has a favorite aunt, and how about the in laws?

Every child who has to deal with difficult parents will probably agree with me when I say it is so hard to say ‘No’ when the unreasonable scenes start. Be it filial piety, sincere gratitude or respect, it is so hard to tell the other party to stop trampling your feelings. We may have primates for ancestors, but really, how can you forget the kindness your parents shower you with to bring you up?

And that is precisely it. Guilt. That is the manipulation tool parents would use. It takes emotional maturity not to fall into such guilt traps and win a truce.

First and foremost, boundaries need to be set. Clashes in relationships start from not being able to respect each other’s space. However, this is probably very difficult to achieve. You can set a boundary and the opposite party will step over it before you could blink. It is the sense of “I am your kin, what’s yours is mine.”

Next, avoid guilt traps and eliminate them. Every time you sense a guilt trap in the making, don’t fall for it, don’t react to it. Rather, step back and encourage the opposite person to stop. If you can understand that such manipulators use guilt because they are powerless, then you can develop empathy for them.

Lastly, if all else fails, then running away will be an option. If your disability to deal with or bear with these negative aspects is hampering your life’s development, then it is perhaps tactical to move away from the sources.

Here is the bottomline. Difficult and irrational behaviors are signs of emotional immaturity. To deal with it, we must, as human beings living in a social circle. Success in handling such situations requires the level of maturity the offender lacks and to want to deal with the problem is the first sign of maturity.

Success may not be guaranteed in every instance but to try is half the battle won.

Redefining Age

HashFlare

The sound of the music had me dancing in my seat. As I watched the couples gliding across the floor, their movements telling a story of love, heartache, failure, and triumph, I imagined myself on that dance floor telling my own story. One filled with death, struggle, survival, happiness, and freedom. We all have a story to tell and I am going to share some of mine. But first, let's go back to the dancing.

I was enthralled. For a period of time I was taken to another world, one where music and dance intertwined and the spoken word is not needed. I have always loved to dance so to see a Tango show up close and personal was exciting. However, to see it where Tango originated, Argentina, on my 40th birthday was remarkable. My husband joined me as we ventured the beautiful city of Buenos Aires and celebrated by 40th birthday all week long. Why such a celebration? Why not? I deserved to mark the 40 years I have been on this earth. Somehow as women we started to envision getting older as a scary event, like a doomsday. Some begging about their age or refusal to acknowledge it. The thought of approaching yet another decade can make a man or a woman cringe with fear. Getting older become familiar with dying. As women continue to live longer, they must begin to change their mentality and learn how to use their age as a tool in rediscovering another part of themselves that exists has been shelved due to any number of reasons, such as; becoming mothers or wives; focusing on our careers; Egypt health limitations. Reaching a milestone birthday should be a time of reflection- what has happened, where are you at now, and where do you want to be in one, three, five, or ten years. How have you changed as a person, as a woman?

For me, having to deal with the death of my mother at 21yrs old certainly changed how I viewed myself back then. It was a time when most 21yr olds are relishing in young adulthood, I was grieving. I was mourning not just my mother, but of a time of my life that I would not be able to live with abandon. Looking back, I can see how it was the catalyst of how I chose to view life. The promise being that life is short. We have all heard that expression. For those who have experienced the death of a loved one, this truth is ever more prominent. During that period I made a lot of mistakes and ended the consequences of poor decisions. However, it began to shape the person I am today because I learned from those mistakes and as the years passed, gained valuable lessons.

My twentyies was about failing, surviving, and struggling. In my thirties I found emotional freedom, and now that I am in my forties, I know myself. I am aware of what I want and I am not afraid to voice it. I am confident in my ability to end confrontations, mature enough to admit my mistakes, and smart enough to know when to move on. My evolution is ongoing. I may know who I am, however, I can continue to grow. I meditate, practice yoga, and write as a way to break through any blockages that keeps me stuck. Through these mediums, I learn more about myself everyday. What do you do to learn about yourself?

Whatever your age is, think about what that means to you. How do you define your age? If you lie about your age, are not you really condemning your rightful place at that stage of your life? You earned every wrinkle, stretch mark, or scar. Be proud. Use that to recognize the strength you have within you. If you are a mother and have a daughter, how is your perception of age affecting her? If you have a niece or younger sister, how are your views possibly affecting how she thinks of women and aging? They see and hear everything, even when you think they do not. Collectively, we must begin to change the concept of women getting old and men becoming distinguished. There are a number of successful, accomplished women who have defied time and used their age as a tool rather than a hazard. With age comes knowledge, confidence, maturity – I could go on and on. The point is, you must begin to shift your thinking from I am getting older to I embody youth, wisdom, and vitality.

At 42, I feel grateful that I was able to graduate from college, survive the death of my mother, have a successful social work career, get married, give birth to a healthy child, and start a business. These huge accomplishments were accompanied by stress, grief, anger, fear, doubt, happiness, and laughter. These experiences are a part of me. I would not trade one challenge for anything in the world. Our experiences and decisions guide us where we are meant to go – our path stretches out before us.

Our strength comes from past and current experiences, good and bad – like a rock pounded by the waves, we are shaped and weathered, and powerful beyond measure.

Ask yourself, "Why are you afraid of getting older? What is the fear that resides inside of you?"

As you begin to forget the reasons behind your fear of aging, you will notice that you will embrace your age instead of avoiding it. You must surrender to the aging process, in order to reap the benefits of the bounty that life has to offer. I can honestly say that I have never had any issues with my age. I entered each decade with reverence. Why? Well I am grateful for the following reasons: I have not just lived another year but 42 of them; I have had my health and my life is full of love and career fulfillment. I welcome the daily challenges, and I have always been thankful for waking up every morning being able to see, hear, walk, and talk.

As you get older, it's about coming into awareness of who you truly are, your authentic self. It's about acceptance and letting go. I would rather not relive my twenties; in my thirties I disclosed in every experience; and in my forties I focus on accepting people as they are, forgiveness, and self-care.

Forget for a moment how old you are. When you think about your ideal life, what does that look like? Do you think it is possible to achieve that? Well, I am here to tell you that it is possible – there are always opportunities for you to accomplish things you thought you could not – if you stay open to serendipity. You can get that high school or college degree, you can switch careers – sometimes not from rocket science to a career as a ballerina, as you imagined as a child, but you could certainly find a way to use your strengths in a brand new industry . What is your passion?
What brings you joy and happiness?

My son makes me laugh every day, and I love settling down with a good book on my deck. Sometimes I get lost in the moment.

Time should be your focus, not age. How are you going to use your time on this earth? Are you going to perseverate about your age, or accept it and truly live? Take advantage of the fact that you are still alive! Use any opportunity you have to finally take that course, ask that guy out, or to treat yourself. Refocus your attention to living for today. I'm not suggesting that you neglect your responsibilities, but to insert taking care of yourself into your daily routine. Start to check off all the items on your bucket list. We do not know what the future holds or how much time we have been given, so choose wisely and remember – numbers are just numbers – it's only when we put meaning to something that it becomes more than what it is.

How to Select a Wedding Photographer

HashFlare

Selecting a wedding photographer can be a daunting task. Not only does the photographer need to be able to produce outstanding memories of your wedding day but also has to be able to fit into the celebration and be highly professional every step of the way.

Often couples make the mistake of basing their decision on wedding photography entirely on price. At the end couples that decide on price get what they pay for.

It is wise to keep your budget in mind when selecting a photographer but it should not be an excuse no to do your homework and evaluate the quality and professionalism of the photographer. Remember, you will have to live with the consequences of your decision.

How to evaluate a wedding photographer?

The style of the wedding photography is very important. Is the photographer a photojournalist with heavy emphasis in documenting the wedding without directing? Do you prefer posed photographs with preplanned posing and controlled lights? Most couples these days prefer a combination of journalistic and traditional wedding photography. They look for a photographer that can capture the true emotion and spirit of the celebration as well as portraits that deserve to be framed.

Whatever style you prefer the photographer has to be a master of the craft. Take a close look at the photographer’s portfolio. Is the work consistent? Insist on looking at a complete wedding. After photographing 20 weddings, it is easy to have 20 lucky shots. Very few photographers have the guts to show you a complete wedding. Only the good ones do.

Are the photographs a true representation of the photographer’s work?

If you are considering a studio that has several photographers insist on looking at the work of the photographer that is going to photograph your wedding.

Does the studio or photographer offer high quality albums and custom printing? Nowadays it is common for some photographers to offer to photograph the wedding and hand you the proofs and a CD or the negatives with the photos and be done with you. Are you going to be happy with a set of proofs or would you want a fine album with custom printed photographs?

Has the photographer been in business for a considerable amount of time? Is this his first wedding? Is he a commercial or sports photographer beginning wedding photography? There is nothing wrong with starting out in a different photography field but you, as the client, need to know this. Wedding photography requires special artistic, technical, and people skills and a wedding it is not the place for a beginner to learn. Somebody interested in learning wedding photography should perhaps accompany a seasoned pro to weddings for some time before venturing out on his own.

Does the photographer carry good quality equipment and backup of camera bodies, lenses, tripod, lights etc? You will be surprised to learn that many photographers go to weddings with only one camera. God help you if that camera breaks in the middle of your wedding.

Personality plays a very important role in wedding photography. Hire the wrong photographer and you and your guests will suffer the consequences. Does the photographer listen to you? Does he have a controlling personality? Does he abide by the rules of the church, temple, or synagogue? Does he want to steal the show and be the center of attention? Does he have people skills? Does he dress professionally? Does he look and smell clean?

Before hiring your photographer please make sure that you answer all the questions above. As a last precaution check with the Better Business Bureau to see if there are unsolved complains against your potential photographer.

Have a happy wedding and enjoy your beautiful photos. Please don’t forget to feed your photographer he or she will be working hard to capture your wedding memories.
