Stubborn, Moody People In Life
Anonymous letters, leaving them in someone's mailbox is harrassment.
If you don't have the integrity to talk to someone face to face, anonymous notes are gossip, covert and deceptive. If you try that on-the-job, could be fired for it.
Address someone face-to-face or remain still.
Not letting someone else run over the top of you, perceived as stubborn.
Not letting someone manipulate you, perceived as moody.
Not letting someone pull the wool over your eyes, perceived as bossy.

Once someone gave me the best advice I could have every asked for. This man of God said to me don't ever let anyone beat you at LOVING.. Love your neighbor as if he were Jesus Christ himself....even if he isn't, because one day he will see Christ in you and that will change him towards Christ and will change his attitudes into Christ like attitudes.!!! Giving Love only reaps Love

I printed out several papers off the internet about bitter people and put it in this womans box. Hopefully she will get the hint.

Ask them if you can pray for them,and if they refuse,walk away singing a joyful sing
praising God and pray for them in secret
Through God all things are possible

Ask them to get some more sleep!!!
Ask them to finish eating their meals!!!
Ask them to go for a walk and get some fresh air.
Ask them to begin to think about the Lord Jesus.
Ask them to become filled with the Holy Spirit. Love is never rude.
Remind them that God can lift their burdens off of them.
Cultivate the Word of God in you - keep doing your prayer/Bible study/church attendance

Regarding moody people I feel in my heart is that they have something troubling them and will lash out at anyone who comes near them. What I suggest you do is try and get them on their own and try and get them to open up and listen to what they are saying. If you are able to offer advice go for it otherwise a listening ear is all they really need.

Patricia I am geting chills just thinking of your answer. I have never looked at it in that way. There is no way anyone can dispute that give love reap love. You are Blessed, be ensouraged! Stay Blessed!

You do not hold anything against them, bad thoughts or lists of wrong doings. You forgive them even if you in right. Finally, pray for them and love them unconditionally.

Tiffany, I know many of these people, some of them very close to me. Jesus wants us to learn to love the unlovable, because that is true unconditional love, however we are not to be doormats, have you read the book "Safe People" by Cloud & Townsend. If not, I recommend, because there are ways to confront some people in love, pray for them, if they are family and loved ones, tell them that the moods and bossiness hurts you, they may not know they are like that.

Dear Tiffany: It does not matter what others do; only what you do. Keep focused on being the pleasant, kind and Godly person He wants you to be. Be an example! Offer the problem up in prayer. Be sure you are studying the Word of God. The rest will go away as you become stronger in the Lord. You won't even notice after awhile. Blessings!

The world is full of them. Just make sure you are not one of them.
Maybe your example will turn them. Most of these people are not satisified with themselves anyway.

stubborness, moody behaviour and a bossy attitude are symptoms of an inferiority complex that a person may be going through. it could also be a deep hurt feeling caused by peer or members of the family that have brought out these traits in the person. actually these people are looking for a kind and understanding soul and having found one then the true person within will be brought out. be firm yet friendly and honest with such people and you will see what a great change you can make in their lives.

Through all my years of working, and traveling I have had many bossy people, moody people in my life. Knew this one guy that if you even spoke to him he would just "grunt." I always made it a point to speak to him. But my main answer would be just stay away...

Sooner or later, we all encounter such people in our lives and, although they can often be unpleasant, it's up to us to make the best of such situations. I prefer to counteract with "kindness". You know the old saying: Keep smiling and keep them guessing. If they can't get to you, then their moody/bossy ways no longer serve a purpose. Of course, it doesn't always work, but I refuse to let anyone ruin MY day. Good luck.

I need help too. I look forward to some great answers.

Life comprises of a variety of people, many of whom may be unsaved and with whom you have to interact on a daily basis. This has helped me over the years......ask God for wisdom to deal with specific people or situations, ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in situations and make suitable declarations that facilitate the advance of God in a situation.
Prayer simply works!!!!!!!
