Looks like what I said in the previous post came true: “challenge is good, it gives us awareness of what we lack in”. This time, I am placed in a totally new situation which I have never experienced before – handling difficult people. I have never been good in managing relationships with others, what more with those who are in an “emotional” state.
To add on, I have never tasted real scolding as a result of committing huge mistakes. The lack of failure in the past has overshadowed my resistance towards hardship and all in all, moulded me into what I am today – overly pampered. After today’s incident, I just realised that I am extremely vulnerable when being put into a tough situation. I need to know how to manage my own disappointment and at the same time, manage the other party’s feelings and demands. As managing difficult people will be part of everyday life, I guess I need more practice to improve my defence mechanism and be seasonalised. Everybody has to start somewhere!
