Try to adopt a “keep it to yourself” attitude about controversies today. Play it safe, because it’s quite likely that your boss or another authority figure will have different opinions than you do. It’s best to just button your lip and bite your tongue. This person isn’t interested in starting a debate about what whether you’re right or they’re right. They need you to just go along with them and not make any waves. And for today, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with doing just that.
A nonchalant, realistic approach to dating will save your sanity and maintain your faith in humanity. Assume that every contact you have with a new person will be your last. That way, when you do finally hear from them, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
You don’t have to say yes to everything you’re invited to. If staying in to snuggle with your partner sounds like a better plan, turn down the party invite. You can make your own celebration for two.
You have enough inner turmoil without getting sucked into the drama of those around you. Block them all out. It won’t make much difference to your bottom line, but it will improve your mood.
