What do we do with irritating people? And things? Avoid them.
I was thinking that maybe we should not avoid them because then they will always hold the power to irritate us. Sit with them. Let them irritate you. See what irritates you. See why it irritates you. Make it a project. Soon you will find they will stop irritating you.
You have your power back. They disappear or they become perfectly OK to have around.
