So I have a really short fuse when it comes to dealing with people; both at work and in my personal life. My patience is about as thin as the hairline of a 45 year old balding man, and I have barely any tolerance for stupidity, ignorance and idiocy. However I have to deal with people in order to get through life and in order to form relationships and eventually be happy, so I have to play ball. What do you guys do in order to deal with people effectively and not go home and drink a whole bottle of vodka?

Moving out of jobs where I have to deal with customers helped.
Listening to and making music with my two bands helps
Sex helps
Alcohol helps
Accepting that no one is perfect and people often judge me as severly as I judge them helped.


Being angry at someone is like drinking poison and expecting them to die. Just let it go

My name is not important. What is important is what I'm going to do... I just fuckin' hate this forum. And the human worms feasting on its corpse. My whole life is just cold, bitter hatred. And I always wanted to post violently. This is the time of shitposting, and no post is worth saving. And I will put in the forum as many as I can. It's time for me to type. And it's time for me to shitpost. My forum crusade begins here.

Yeah just be more tolerant. Not with your actions, but your emotions. If someone's an idiot and you need to argue with them about something important then do so and put them in their place, but there is no need to blow a fuse and fuck shit up.

And try to have the mentality of making the other people better. Are they stupid or ignorant? Try to make them realize their own status and convince them to change themselves (e.g convince them to seek other opinions, etc). Try to understand why they have those views or act that way, and after you do use that to make them realize that too.

Oh, come on. You know when you're being an asshole to somebody.


It's intentional even if it's done as a reaction. You know when you start feeling like you're gonna get mad. So stop winding yourself up and get a grip.

I learned how to let things go and when to realize things weren't worth getting mad about. For me, it was a combination of counseling, self-reflection, and finding a philosophy that worked for me. It may be different for you, but you first have to start by thinking about what makes you mad, and why it does. You already have stated that you want to change, and that's a major step, so that's awesome. Use that momentum to keep yourself going. Self-change is one of the hardest things we can do, but goddamn does it feel good once we've accomplished it.

Sometimes people don't. Self-monitoring / mindfulness is a lost art in modern society as we are constantly going and going. Sometimes we have to reteach ourselves to think about what we're feeling and thinking in the moment.

I just don't agree with that at all. I think people are pretty conscious of what they are doing and if they aren't then I would guess something deeper is going on than "oh I hate this guy he always says something stupid" etc...

There's a lot of research into mindfulness. It's becoming an important field in psychology; we're increasingly just reacting to stimuli without really thinking about why we're doing it because of the way we're conditioned with rapid communication and information overload.

Armchair psychology aside, are people really that ignorant of their actions or are people just not willing to admit how shitty they are?


Either way, it's not my problem. I take responsibility for my own.

Rude. One of my professors was an expert in mindfulness. This is legit stuff from the literature. Assumptions aside...

Like most either/or questions, it's a bit of both. Some people completely lack self-awareness, others are total asshats, and the other 90% are on the spectrum in-between the two extremes.

Sure, I can agree with that.


But IMO I think a lot of people are moreso inclined to play ignorant than admit they have a problem. I'm just a layman though so who cares right?
