- No “Waiting Game” … ever! Arrogant pride works against you when you wait for the other party to mend a rift.
Arrogant pride works against you when you wait for the other party to mend a rift.
Our emotions get in the way of smooth interactions with other people. A minor “offence” from someone will either blow away gently or take a big space in our life depending on how prepared we are to handle it well.
The ”Waiting Game” is one where nobody ever wins. It is the game that you play when, after a minor discomfort provoked by someone else’s comment or action, you get into the “Oh yeah?!…You just wait!… you’ll see!” mental disposition and decide to prove them wrong by waiting things out.. Your ego and your pride actually lead to you to make things worse.
Living with less stress actually requires settling differences earlier and clearing the air. No brooding on small things and no damaging effects from your negative emotions on your body.
There is no need to overreact on small things either and make a fuss on everything you disagree about. It needs staying focused on what is the best move for the long term and what simple gesture or positive comment or gesture will be helping to settle things down.
It requires from you to be in the highest possible level of conscience about what is happening and to know what you want in the long term. Good decisions flow out of such a combination. Less stress… guaranteed.
