Speaking favor into others is a great way to help shift the energy dynamics in how you and that other person interact. This may seem very 'woo-woo, ' yet as with anything suggested, I always say just try it. By speaking and thinking favorable thoughts towards a challenging person, this helps to naturalize your preconceived outcome of your interactions.
It's also a way to open yourself up to the practice of compassion. We do not walk in the shoes of others, or truly understand their influences and role models growing up and even currently. People do what they know and until aware, change may be postponed. A great way for you to help shift that energy, is in how you respond to them. This is one method that could potentially help you, simply by speaking favor.
