I am not a Life Coach. I’m just talking about what I would have done Before and what I would do After. This is just to show how I’ve evolved over the years and hopefully the After part sounds a bit mature
- When you get a text from an unnecessary person asking unnecessary/pointed questions
Before: Think a million times but answer all pointed questions with honesty because you don’t wanna offend them. (“Stupidly”)
After: Ignore/Reply sarcastically
2. When you hear a rumour about yourself
Before: Hear it -> Be shocked -> Tears fill your eyes -> You run away -> Hide in your room -> Hyperventilate -> Be emo -> Curl into a ball
After: “Really? I did that?? Cool”
3. When you meet someone you don’t like
Before: Smile, be polite, hold a conversation
After: Take out your mobile and keep browsing FB.
4. When someone is worried/concerned about you (all of a sudden)
Before: Think that it’s out of the goodness of their heart and be grateful/indebted to them
After: Yeah…? You’re ‘worried’ for me? Gee..thanks!
5. When you get a text at 4.39 AM
Before: Reply before 4.41 AM
Priority Scale :-
Reply immediately : You’re my family/closest friend;
Within a day : You’re important;
Within 3 days: You’re in my contact list;
Within a week: You’re not in my contact list;
This is out of all the experiences where I wished I didn’t care and that I’d thought of a smarter/wittier response to someone’s hurtful/vindictive/mean actions. I’m still not good at this, but I hope i’ll get better !
Here’s to having the courage to be yourself, and not apologising for it!
