I wasn’t an easy child, suffice to say I was very difficult, but perhaps others need to look at why people go on to show difficult character traits.
To be difficult for difficult sake isn’t right, but being difficult because you’re trying to get to grips with something you deal with, with no emotional support, is a whole different ball game, as far as I am concerned. Perhaps people shouldn’t just assume people are difficult, then write them off because they are.
Yes, we all have difficulties that we deal with, but when we get to look behind those difficulties at the bigger picture, we get to see the issues that have manifested themselves in years of behaviour traits. There are reasons behind people’s difficult character traits. We’re not born difficult. It’s important for others to understand. The answers are always there.
On the part of the person who is being difficult, perhaps they should also take a closer look at themselves and see how they can work to change some of those difficult traits. That would be easier of course, if they weren’t being written off.
It’s easy for us to ignore, turn a blind eye and accept that someone is difficult, but perhaps instead of condemnation, what those people need from us is help.
