It is possible - even with all those irritating people out there. Here's several keys to doing this.
- Stop focusing on other people's faults. Oh, if you're perfect, you can ignore this.
- Work on appreciating their positive qualities. No one is all bad.
- Recast a slightly annoying trait into an endearing one. There's a limit to this, of course. You'll have a hard time convincing yourself that someone who constantly puts other people down or who tells you how to run your life is "cute".
- Find out what you have in common.
- Especially if it's an unusual interest or hobby.
