The Stoic Way of Dealing With Unpleasant or Miserable People

  1. Keep your distance
  2. Don’t engage them
  3. Don’t expect anything out of them, or from them
  4. No need to blame them — their actions and behaviors are just an offshoot of what they’re dealing with
  5. It has nothing to do with you
  6. Ignore the barking of dogs with rabies
  7. Don’t try to “help” them or “save” them — just ignore them and keep your distance.
  8. Don’t seek their “approval” or “respect”. They’re lower and more base than you — you wouldn’t even want their respect if they offered it to you.
  9. No need to “defend” yourself. Just make a random saying or joke and move on and walk away.
