All of us happen to meet pesky people in our life. We find others stepping on our shoes and we step on other’s shoes many times.
An easy solution to handle such tricky scenarios or people is to look at them with wonder or amusement. Instead of getting upset by other’s worst practices or best practices, we can take it as a new view of the world. Instead of saying” How could they do this?” we can say “Hey, how different and funny they are!!” Become a tourist when you look at your neighbours and their pranks.
Swami Sukhabodhananda in one of his discourses offers hilarious tips to handle bullies. He says if a relative, boss or a customer was getting on your nerves; just imagine them as being dressed in funny attires, like pre-historic tribal wear or a swim suit. Then envision them haphazardly dancing away to glory, with a guitar in hand perhaps. You could think of long painted horns on their heads too.
Otherwise, just scramble bothersome people in your heads. Imagine a hot vessel in which you do an egg scramble of people who amuse you too much!!! Add few spices if you want. Red chilli powder would be good. Just give it a shot ;)
