A student has to undergo varying types of instances, some positive and some negative. While, all of us want to keep having the positive incidents every day, it is very natural to even face and handle the negative ones. As a student, there are the cases when your friend takes you for granted, or your girlfriend takes your schedule as granted and dumps all her plans on you. Whatever may be the case, it is really important to stand for yourself. As a person, you might be surrounded by some toxic/unconsidering people in your life and it entirely lies on your shoulder to tackle it bravely and act smart in such cases.
- Explain calmly: Explain them why it is not possible to always act as per their plans. It is very natural for you to have your own plans and as such it is unfair of them to expect your availability.
- Teach them to accept gracefully: Try telling them that while you completely understand their good intent behind the plan, it might not be possible some times to accommodate everything entirely as they desire owing to various other variables involved. Also, tell them that just because you are not able to entirely follow their plan, this doesn’t mean that you don’t care/respect them. Convince them to understand to think from your perspectives too.
- Don’t get disappointed: Despite the case that you tried your best and they still don’t get your point, don’t get disappointed. It’s impractical to entertain each and everyone. Therefore, stand for them when they need but don’t get sad or otherwise disappointed. Leave them plainly on their fate after once you have tried your best to explain.
Give yourself enough value. Stand your yourself. Be cautious of your decisions and stand on them. It is a mantra for strong character and a tip to live peacefully with yourself.
