bye bye!  
People who vex us are a fact of life, but one of the great gifts I give myself is reducing my exposure to them to the minimum necessary. This increases my patience during those instances when I really must interact with them and improves my mood and general equilibrium across the board.
I'm feeling: chipperchipper

That's pretty much the best self care advice ever. Hard to follow, but the rewards are huge.

Oh yes. My overall happiness level went WAY up when I decided to auto-block ALL group messages from one particular person on a messaging forum I frequent.

Ha. The people who vex me most are band members or coworkers. I don't tolerate social vexers anymore, but my contacts in other departments at day job have all changed in the last year, and to the last one of them, they are either incompetent or obstructionist. FUN! :) I did manage to convince one band leader that band members who ruin your day need to go ruin someone else's day, so although 2011 was SUCKY for that, 2012 got much better, and 2013 may get better still.
