“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up.” –Marilyn Monroe
Straight from the mouth of the queen Betty, no one could have said it better. This week we learned a valuable lesson about taking a step back even when our emotions are in overdrive.
Everybody has their battles whether they wear them on their vibrantly colored fuschia sleeve or they bury them deep down. But learning how to read people is a skill YOU should learn as soon as possible. Not only is it valuable in your workplace and with people you’re just meeting but it can save face when it comes to your next love interest.
Recently, we misread an emotion from a friend and started asking too many questions(as most girls do), all with good intentions of course. This spiraled into a confrontation we wanted nothing to do with and after some “words” we were left at a distance. One shitty situation if you ask us.
What we learned though, through communication and realizing not everyone is going to share their feelings we can still learn to take a step back. Paying closer attention to those people who don’t wear their emotion on their sleeve is important. Don’t pressure them just learn to accept that you can’t change a person, you can just be there for them.
We’ll always think we can fix people though, that’s just how Betties are!
