The feeling of disliking someone to the point where you get annoyed even when they cough. Have a person like that in class? Well here’s a few tips for you: (this was requested btw)
- Stay calm
The moment you walk into your class and spy the irritating being just try to keep calm. Don’t reveal your annoyance/dislike outwardly (basically don’t go up to them and say “ew” or anything like that).
- They don’t exist
Pretend they don’t exist. In your mind let yourself believe they aren’t even in the class with you. Keep yourself from making eye contact or any contact with them and this could be very easy.
- Be civil
If you must come in contact with them, be civil. Speak to them politely and straightforwardly. Try not to say anything too personal to them. If they do speak to you try to make the conversation as pleasant as it can be.
- Working with them
Sometimes in classes you’re going to have to work with people you dislike, it’s a part of life. Again- just try to be civil. Try your best to remain on topic and not have any conversations that aren’t about the assignment/project. However, if it gets to a point that you just cannot deal with them ask your teacher (politely) for a new partner.
- Both don’t like each other
If it’s a mutual dislike for each other there shouldn’t be much of an issue of seeing around them. Keep yourself distanced from them and I’m sure they’ll do the same. Don’t get in each other’s way basically.
Avoid the person by surrounding yourself with people you do like in the class. Keep yourself in a small friend group that’s away from them. If you share a friend group, don’t completely ignore them. Be POLITE. But if you can, try to keep talking to at least one person in the group.
In the end try not to get into fights and just try to find good things about the person/people because you don’t need negativity in your life, it’ll just fill you with anxiety so just let it goooooo, let it gooo.
Hope things work out,
