This is partly a rant. How do you deal with people. I have done a lot and seen a lot in my short 7 years. I have often found it hard dealing with people. After seeing true suffering I get highly annoyed when people are complaining about the little problems they have about how their sandwich wasn't right and how they are to hot and on and on. Then there's trying to be patient when you are working with them and remembering that you can't talk harshly With them as they are sensitive. So the question part how do you guys deal with it what are your techniques to staying calm and polite and nice. I do a good job at it just wanted to see if anything else works better.

SSgt (Join to see) I think that your patience will grow over time with wisdom, understanding, and more experience. I use to be very impatient, but I found that over time as I matured, became confident in my leadership abilities, gained valuable wisdom from my peers and leaders, that I soon took on more patience and learned to understand people better for their strengths, faults, and weaknesses. Not everyone is going to be like you and your not going to be like them. We are unique and thats what makes us special in our own way. Learning to accept people for who they are and what they have been through is a step in the direction of profound wisdom. You will soon learn that "Grasshopper!" Thought I would throw in a little humor. Just my shot at your question.
I have been asking the same question to myself lately. Unfortunately, the people I'm trying to figure out are those who are still in the military. It sems like i have to be super sensitive of people's feelings a lot more lately even when I'm just being matter-of-fact. It's really frustrating.
