How to Deal with Difficult Situations and People

Great Grey Owl

Some words of wisdom from the I Ching by Brian Browne Walker:


Arriving at the correct solution to a difficult situation requires a receptivity to inner truth.
Unless we are willing to put aside the strong emotions of our egos and devote ourselves to discovering what is right, there can be no hope of progress at this time.  Help only comes when we invite it with a sincere and innocent attitude.


The I Ching teaches a simple but effective method of influencing difficult people and arduous situations.  It advises us first to lay aside our prejudices – our feelings of being wounded, angry or in the right – and second to seek to understand the positions of others and the lesson that the Sage is teaching us with the situation. Even when another is truly out of line, it is only by accepting this and remaining balanced that you make it possible for positive change to occur.  Gentleness and understanding create in others an unconscious willingness to be led.

The superior person therefore avoids the use of anger and force in trying times, knowing that they only prolong conflict.  It is far wiser to accept that each experience we have is necessary for us to learn something about ourselves and about the higher laws of life.  The greatest openings come when we meet difficulty with acceptance, gentleness and a desire to understand the lesson underneath.


It is a fact of life that times of decrease come upon us; our resources are limited, difficulty surrounds us and our egos generate angry and unhappy emotions.  Nonetheless, such times are good for us.  If we respond to them by quieting our egos and turning sincerely to the Higher Power for help, we emerge from the period of decrease stronger, healthier and wiser.

    I enjoyed your post and agree that difficult people present us with an opportunity to learn about ourselves. With self-awareness, we can remain calm and neutral in the face of problematic behaviors. I often encourage people to turn to their Higher Power for help in understanding what hot buttons are being triggered. The key is not only quieting those hot buttons, but uncovering and deactivating them.

      Thank you for coming by to visit!
      Yes, disengaging from the conflict is a good start. Eventually you can see it coming before it starts.
      It really helps to not have to react.

      Have a wonderful day!
