I’ve jokingly noted on Facebook that although the phenomenon of dealing with difficult people is rare, especially during the holidays, my co-hosts Lisa, Kristyn and I decided we should talk about it anyway. Seriously, carols extolling this as The Most Wonderful Time of the Year aside, for many it’s the most stressful time of the year, for a myriad of reasons. Tonight at 7 p.m. Eastern, we’re going to focus our energy on how to successfully cope with the challenging friends, relatives and acquaintances who are completely unavoidable this holiday season due to mandatory events, gatherings and celebrations. Guiding this discussion will be relationship expert Marie Dubuque:
Relationship expert, life coach and author, Marie Dubuque examines rudeness in the digital age. How do you handle it when someone blocks you on Facebook? What do you say if you’ve just embarrassed yourself at a cocktail party and the host snubs you? From one blunder to another, Marie deals with every aspect of living amongst loud obnoxious people glued to their cell phones all day long. Marie talks about surviving and thriving in a society where rudeness has become a way of life. And she firmly believe you can be polite and kind and still get ahead in this world!
