Loving Difficult People

Do you have difficult people in your life? (Of course you do.) We all do. Consider the advantage that frogs have - they can eat anything that bugs them! Wouldn’t it be great if we could do something similar- we could swallow up our relational challenges rather than let

them consume us.

Let’s look at perspective. I act as I see myself. It is impossible to consistently behave in a manner that is inconsistent with the way we see ourselves. When you can realize that people will treat you according to how they see themselves, rather than how you really are, you are less likely to be affected by their behavior.

Did you really catch that? It’s the key to understanding, accepting, and loving difficult people. People who are difficult, are frustrating, right? They are also frustrated with who they are. When you can realize that people will treat you according to how they see themselves, rather than how you really are, you are less likely to be affected by their behavior.

Response: Love them as the person, you know they can be.

Adapted from Become a People Person by John Maxwell.
