Better to tread lightly than force out of the crowd. Difficult people are a constant. They weave in and out of your life. I have learned the best you can do to deal with them is to pamper your needs first. You can’t help anyone or deal effectively with a difficult person until you are whole. You might say I am dealing with some right now. You might also conclude that I took a photo of this gorgeous High Desert sunset in front of the Olive Garden, waiting for a table. There’s a reason for everything you see. I gotta be faithful to me.
