I like to say that I dont hate anyone that I know. Hate is a very strong word. But there are a few people that I really really really can not stand, and they bug me so much, that I am almost tempted to use the word Hate towards them. You know that you dont really care for someone when you see them somewhere and you feel an instant feeling of dread come over you and you want to crawl in a hole and not come out until they leave. I have been having this feeling lately with a person that I come in contact with at least once a week, sometimes more. I dread having to deal with them and pray that the time we do have to be in contact will pass oh so quickly so that I will not have this attitude, as I find it makes me mean and not a very nice person to be around. I have talked about these feelings that I have with several people and am surprised that I am not the only one that has these feelings. Its sad that someone can have such strong feelings of dislike for another person that when you see them you want to run and hide or throw something at them and hope they go away.
A good friend gave me some advice, that I have been trying hard to put into practice. She told me that even though it may not be pleasant to be around a person that you really cant stand, since there is nothing I can really do about it, to do my best to ignore them, and not let it effect my work. I am happy to report that I am doing pretty good with this, but there are some days, today being one of them that I just dont have the energy or desire to make it work and to be nice and tolerate this person. If only the next six hours will pass by in a blink of an eye and I can stop being an angry bear to everyone I come in contact with.
