Disregard the Moody

If someone is unreasonably criticizing you or being rude to you don’t react or snap at them. Instead disregard their behavior. Don’t take it personally Keep your interaction to a minimum. Perhaps their having a bad day. Mentally wish them well.

It may be necessary to speak up to a person who is regularly criticizing or being rude or bullying or getting angry at you. See if you can respond in a calm but firm manner. For example, “I would appreciate that you speak to me in a respectful way.”
