  • I've never been able to 'handle' people. What works best, and for me better, is to avoid them. You won't be able to change them or how they behave so don't waste your time or your breath.

  • Raise the bar and stay away from them

  • Obviously, avoiding them is the best option. However, if they're unavoidable, just let the crap they're spewing go in one ear and straight out the other. I have quite a few family members like that and I just roll my eyes at the crap they say. If it doesn't involve/affect me..I'm not going to stress over it.

  • Let them know you rather not deal with them because you know how much they stretch the truth and make it your business to stay away from them. Misery loves company if you know they have a problem don't make their problem your problem.
