See that none render evil unto any man:  but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 

I Thessalonians 5:15

Disagreeable people are a problem to all of us, and it is a problem that has to be met.  It is easy to go through life feeling that we are the victims of other people’s thought and action.  We all have an adequate vocabulary to describe just how vicious and mean the other fellow is. One of the essential teachings of Jesus was a spiritual way of handling our fellowman.  He, also, had vicious and unkind people in his world, but he understood that the people who were unkind needed his love and understanding more that all the others.  They needed healing.  We are practicing his teachings, and we know that all that needs correction is our own thought.  The other man’s actions and words fail to register in our consciousness, when our minds are sustained in a Spiritual concept of what he really is.  God is in the so-called enemy.  God’s life is his life, and God’s Mind is his Mind.

Everyone in my life is blessing and benefiting me.  They are Spiritual Beings expressing toward me the love and justice of Almighty God.  I do not have an enemy.  I have only God’s people in my world. No one is vicious, mean or unkind to me, for my consciousness cannot receive such wrong ideas.  I believe that man is the individualization of God, and as such the people in my world are good, loving and kind.  No one can hurt me but myself, and I refuse to do that.  I keep my thoughts worthy of the Infinite Thinker that is expressing through me.  I believe in the Christ in my fellowman, and I see him as he really is.
