Don’t give other people permission to ruin your day. – Anonymous
Life is precious. People who are in our lives are special but in the process of developing relationships, we should never forget ourselves. We should be in touch with our needs and principles at all times.
Every day in life must have a purpose and we should be in control of what we want. It is always not possible to predict what will come our way, but we should try to live life on our own terms the best way possible.
We should have a clear plan in mind about how we would want our life to proceed in the short term and the long term. As and when we see changes coming in, we must adapt to it and move on. It is, of course, easier said than done but we should try our best to cope up with life and its changes.
In the pursuit of adapting and moving on, all of us develop a circle of people whom we are mutually dependent upon. But there might be times when some people become too overwhelming and they might be from our inner circle itself.
So, starting from them to any other outsider who has assumed that they have the power to intervene, you should avoid all such people. Sometimes, we also find ourselves so much in love with a person that we lose control over ourselves. We let them overpower us, willingly.
This is where restraint needs to be exercised and we should be cautious that we never give anyone else the upper hand in our lives so much so that they can ruin a day for us. If we are able to master this way of living, then we can have control over our life.
