Some people are, indeed, like that .....

Re: Dealing With People Who Push Your Buttons

Do you mean in a good way or a bad way? I know people who have pushed my buttons and I was quite happy to let them.

Iím looking for tips that can help and hopefully ones Iíll remember.

Iím needing help with this one.

Firstly, don't be timid and don't be bullied. It is an insecure way of bullying.
Once you've got the handle on that, confront the person responsible and ask why they like to wind you up. If there's no answer to be had, they at least know that you know and it probably wouldn't happen again.
If it does, turn into a rottweiler (puppy)

Re: Dealing With People Who Push Your Buttons

Tolerance Bratti....
Two wrongs do not make a right!
Show them who the better person is, and the worst thing you can do (in my opinion) is react, it's what they want you to do.....

Easy to say, but hard sometimes to do....I sometimes take the bait....

But if you can hold out it makes you feel good....

Same here.

I eat my own bag or box of chocolate buttons, they have to be Cadburys & they are all mine.

Re: Dealing With People Who Push Your Buttons

There are only very few people who rattle me and those that do, I find it best to avoid wherever possible.

I also think that sometimes if someone is feeling annoyed or anxious, it can be to do with the mood of the moment.
Sometimes the next day, they would view the situation quite differently.

That's selfish, Tiffany. You should share them with Carol
