It's been a while.
I am feeling sickly now. . .
Because, you know. .
M sick. . . (ooooookay, not funny)
So yes, today's topic is to BE COOL
No I'm not talking bout Yolanda's song
(tho it's a nice song, hard to deny)
It's being calm and cool at times of crisis
Easier said then done, I know.
So that day my friend was going on about how her mom nags her and stuff
At first she was like: annoyed. -okay, I got it I got it-
Then it was like: -STOP IT stop stop stop it-
Then it was like: yelling. And the scene ain't pretty.
Being the nice friend I am (heeee!) I tried to comfort her.
The more she describe the situation, the more I froze and realize...
There's a problem of communication between us
Not US as in me and her, but US as in we and our parents.
I'm sure it's not the first time you guys face a problem like that.
You telling your parents something, then they try to help you in their way.
Then you feel like they are over sensitive and over reacting. . . .
Then you start to lose it.
The question comes to:
HOW. . . . . . . . . to avoid situations like that?
Which brings me back to my topic, BE COOL
When you are faced with a situation which does not favor you
1. your cool (as in being calm, do not react immediately)
2. your head (as in your rationality)
Do understand others before wanting others to understand you.
Let them know that you do understand their points by repeating their points
Then try to tell them yours.
Do not lose the chance to communicate because you lose control of your emotions.
Another tip: Smile, take it easy.
So, that's my rant for today.
It's what I've learnt myself.
Keep your cool dude and dudess!
It's not that hard. . . .
