Have you ever interacted with someone that irritates you? I mean they really get under your skin. Maybe it was a past experience you had with them or maybe they just remind you of someone you are not fond of. The bottom line is this can get in the way of communicating. It would be nice if we could just say “bye” and walk away from people like that. Sometimes you can and sometimes you cannot. So what do you?


Why do they irritate you? Who is being harmed more by the interaction, you or them. They may not even know you feel the way you do and now you are irritated and they have no idea. Is that productive?


I know having to think about what you think about can be in itself irritating depending on your mood. In the long run though, you will save yourself time, frustration, and needless irritation.
