Publisher's Summary

Learn how to cope with difficult people from someone who has spent the past 45 years learning how.

Are you exhausted with dealing with someone who is constantly trying to push your emotional buttons? Is there someone in your life who tends to keep you on the defensive, always feeling like you have to defend your character? Do you have someone in your life who is always projecting negativity on you? Is there a friend, spouse, co-worker, or family member who keeps you upset most of the time? Do you find yourself obsessing over the poor behaviors of a controlling or manipulative person in your life?

If any of the above questions apply to you, the ideas that Cindy Help presents in her audiobook about coping with difficult people will help you:

  • Protect yourself from allowing the negativity of others affect you
  • Stop arguing
  • Stop being an emotional wreck because of someone's poor behavior
  • To interact with difficult people in such a way that you won't allow them to steal your peace of mind
  • See how you have the power to choose your battles
  • Handle confrontations with difficult people with confidence
  • And much more...

Tips from this audiobook about coping with difficult people:

For starters, whenever you feel angry or upset, you can simply just take a deep breath and think of anything that makes you happy. If this doesn't help, try counting to 10. Once you've finished counting, it's likely that you will have finished clearing your mind and will have thought of much better ways to deal with your current scenario.

Instead of gritting your teeth

Difficult situations and people get a lot easier to deal with when you understand the situation. This book helped me really understand what was happening in my mind when my emotions start to flare up against an abrasive person.

Sometimes the answer is to manage your own emotions. Sometimes it's just avoiding the situation. Either way, I definitely found some strategies to use - I work in customer service, so difficult people come with the territory.

Contains valuable approaches!

If you could sum up Coping with Difficult People in three words, what would they be?

Really good ideas.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There were not any characters.

What does JC Anonymous bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As with other audio books, you are able to absorb more than just reading the words on the page. That's what the narrator offers with this story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The tagline would be, Dealing with even the most difficult people is no longer a problem.

Any additional comments?

This book gives you some great options to deal with people that are complicating your life. This means anyone from a coworker to a family member, and anyone in between.
