Change Your Approach
If you consider for a moment a young child talking with friends and encouraging them to play a game the way she wants. Then think for a moment how that same child will react to an elderly relative or an unknown adult in the house.
The way they interact changes with each person they encounter. Likewise, if you find that someone has a tendency to be overbearing with you at work or at home, if you are able to create a new stance, you will find they will begin to treat you differently.
So if you are not happy with the way someone treats you, consider what YOU need to change in yourself, to change the way they treat you.
Create a never ending to do list and learn to realise you are not meant to complete it.
Method : Create your todo list with the most important at the top.
Cross off your achievements as you go.
At the end of the day, create a new todo list for tomorrow taking the things from today’s list that weren’t completed. Put the most important at the top.
Remind yourself how organised you are and how good you are at completing the most important jobs.
Stop worry what others think of you. If they judge you it is their issue not yours. Your issue is how you judge others. Learn that you cannot please everyone and you are the best person you can be right now!
It is not always about you!
Your ego tells you that others are judging you.
Consider for one moment that this is just not true.
Consider for a moment that this other person has their own worries which are much more important to them than you are right now.
If someone is sharp with you they may be have something really worrying on their mind and are just not focussed on you right now.
If someone does not give you the response you expected it may because they are anxious about something else right now.
Give them a chance, give them understanding, wait until a better moment, do not assume it is something you said or did, or didn’t say or do.
