You Always Have a Choice
Knowing yourself, your likes and dislikes, and identifying your values is one of the key elements in developing healthy self-esteem. In order to feel good about your interactions with others, you need to makes sure you are clear about what you want and deserve from these interactions. Looking at your values system and how you feel after the interaction is over, is an important way for you to evaluate if this is someone you should be spending your valuable time with. You may not be able to change others, but you always have a choice on how much time you give to them, your response and if you want to engage with them in the future.
How to Make the Right Choice
Take Good Care.
