Jesus says, "Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you." He goes on to say, in essence, be good to people even if they're not good to you. Don't judge or condemn; forgive instead. Give! "For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." All this may sound weak to most, but not to God. Ultimately, we should relate to others in ways that please God. Sounds like impossible demands from our Lord. Hopefully, it's not! Years ago, when I was up against something that seemed impossible, my preacher told me, "Pray real hard, Jeff!"
