...that you just absolutely cannot stand, and I've definitely found my currently most disliked person. It's that person who, for some portion of your life and for a variety of reasons, just seems to always get under your skin even if they don't mean to. The one who you try to avoid for the most part but who will always seem to find you at your most frustrated moment to drop a snide comment or remark your way.
Even though I tend to preach tolerance and acceptance, I find the practice so much more difficult than the theory and it troubles me that I'm so bothered by this person and the way they interact with me because I should be able to just accept the fact that we disagree on a variety of topics and move on with my life. But, not agreeing and not getting along are 2 different things and there's something about this particular person that makes my blood boil whenever they direct a comment my way.
(For context, I know this person through Boy Scouts so I don't have to deal with them on a regular basis at all. Our only interactions are the occasional comments on FB and seeing each other at Scouting events.)
I am troubled by it because it's unnecessary for me to stress myself over something so minor. Therefore, I have tried to remove myself from any chance at contact with this person in the hopes that the distance will diminish the conflict. However, I feel as though this is an easy way out of the issue since I have been trying to work on my understanding and tolerance of others (especially those whom I strongly dislike).
Do others have that one person that they just absolutely cannot stand, or have you all found effective methods to deal with the person or problem in question?
I'm not necessarily looking for a solution, just insight into how others deal with people they don't get along with.
