      1. In the past, I’ve paid huge prices to do so, and so I’m positive did the karma of those who would not leave the peacefully intended in peace. There’s always a choice.

  1. I pay them no mind….unless they come for me directly. Most people who are truly angry, who really feel the need to let you know about yourself or what irks them about, will express it. Otherwise, they’re cowards. So, as the saying goes “don’t come for me, unless I send for you” – Kenya Moore Housewives of ATL. Or in other words, don’t start none, won’t be none.😙

  2. Honestly, it depends on so many factors. Person A became angry with me for something outside my control – I’ve blocked them, after feeling triggered. Person B is pissed of because of something I did that I feel was the correct course of action – I don’t interact with them, but don’t feel threatened. Mostly, I just keep away from people. I’m not here to eat their stress and anger.

  3. Generally speaking when someone is angry with me, it is more than likely for a legitimate reason. So I try my best to let them have their moment, it doesn’t always work that way, but I try to talk through it as comply as possible. We all can be so angry inside and sometimes you just need to let it go.

    1. I love your approach! I believe people get angry because of their perception about things. This is why the same situation can make someone angry, but not another.

      1. I have learned it is best to allow people time to process. I no longer take responsibility for someone else’s feelings or behavior, unless I know I am at fault. If I am at fault, I make amends. If I do not “believe” I am at fault, I do nothing. Only my EGO would be responding and I need to keep my EGO in check.

      1. No, emotions are overrated (anger is one) and people are angry in general because they can and want. Most times they are angry for things they cannot control, so reacting with anger towards anything or anybody gives them a false sense of control.

  4. I believe it was one of the Stoics who said something to the effect of, “Oh, he has a problem with me? That’s his problem.” I like this approach. I can ask if I have offended and try to make amends, but I have no control over the other individual.

  5. I will ask them why they are angry at me.

    If I did make a mistake to make them mad, I will admit to it and ask for forgiveness.

    If I didn’t commit their accusations, I will tell them that I did not do the things they think I did.

    If they don’t believe me, I leave. I don’t deserve to have a negative person in my life.

    If they won’t leave me alone, I’ll get the authorities involved.

  6. I try to diffuse the situation by apologizing for making them upset. If they are willing to listen, I try to explain my view and if they don’t want to listen I apologize and drop the subject.
