I'm pushing 70 and I've learned that there are just some people with whom you can't get along. It's not you. It's not them. It just is. Avoid contact. Avoid guilt. It just is.
However, if that person irks you, sometimes it's simply noteworthy that that particular person displays a trait that you hate in yourself. And if you avoid that other person forever, you won't ever have to confront your shadow self. Of course, if that person is a drain on you, it's noteworthy to see why it's uncomfortable to say good bye.
I suspect that sme things that makes us snort with amusement and recognition tell us something about ourselves as well...
