We all have that one person who we genuinely dislike. We despise whatever they do. We find ways to avoid them, heck we even talk behind their backs and give fake smiles every time they pass by. And since you can’t justify the dislike, you continue hating them.
However, one thing you tend to ignore is that this hatred is harmful to you more than it is to them. They might turn a blind eye, but you, you will keep wasting your positive energy on hate and will damage your own mental health. So how do you find a mid-way? We help you clear the dilemma.
1. Find something in common that you agree on
Whether it’s supporting a cause or your favourite cricket team, you both need to find a common ground to talk about. Once you find that, talking with them, sort of becomes easier.
2. Win the audience
The crowd who is witnessing the entire hate drama between you and the other person should always be on your side. Therefore, always make sure that you don’t hate someone who is a people’s person because the crowd will always support them.
3. Talk in detail and to the point
Never make a vague comment or say a line without a justification. Always talk with the person you dislike about minor details and they will never try to talk more because the additional information won’t leave any space for questions. Talking to the point will give them the idea that you aren’t open for small talk.
