Everyone has to work with very difficult people whether that’s at school, work, or in their personal lives. Therapists say that what is meant by someone being “difficult” is that they’re hard to interact with. They might be a person that has to be right in anything or someone that genuinely enjoys mocking other people. They can be quite volatile and prone to exploding over minor issues.
Therapists have offered four ways to deal with people like this. The first is to remember to never share something your not secure about. Second, deflect the conversation to a subject not about you. Third, try to be empathic and realize some people might have had a difficult childhood or recent events that are making them behave the way they do. Finally, try not to take things personally. Some people are just rude and it has nothing to do with you.
Talkspace is a therapy app that helps people deal with issues such as this. It matches those who feel the need for therapy with someone who can provide it. The app uses a format that is similar to text messaging. Once you put your details into the app someone at Talkspace will contact you to get more information. They will then hand select a primary therapist that will work with you in the future.
Conventional therapy can be quite cost prohibitive, even with insurance sometimes. Talkspace, on the other hand, is just $25 a week. Users of the app are hooked up with professionals like a licensed mental health counselor who has extensive training and experience working with people on the issues in their lives. People get a fresh perspective on things that helps them deal with problems whether they are personal or professional in nature.
