Clients always come in different shapes and sizes. Sometimes you get to work with difficult clients who are unresponsive when you reach out. Some are always unhappy with your work (no matter how many iterations you went through). Others are simply taking advantage of you and not paying until satisfied.
But there’s also a positive point of view on difficult clients. When you reframe the problem and start seeing it from a different perspective, you’ll realize that that kind of client can help you build emotional resilience.
Thankfully, throughout my experience, I’ve had enough of difficult clients, so it’s easier now to identify ones even before the project begins. Aside from that, it can be beneficial to you to work with some of the problematic clients so that they can help you grow in the area you didn’t know about.
