this way and that

Some people always clammor to get their own way. From children to adults, from the playground to the board room, to relationships and break-ups. Someone is always trying to get their way. I can't deny that I sometimes have wanted my way and looking back, I can also see that my way was not only selfish, but wrong. I give credit to the people that didn't let me get my way because it makes you a better person. I wouldn't say that it's called dealing with adversity, but I think it teaches you to look closer at what you want and how you can compromise with someone to get what you both want. If you are on the receiving end of someone who always wants their way, say no once in a while and they might try and approach you or the situation differently. I mean, saying to no to someone who always wants their way doesn't mean you're not compromising; it says to the person that they need to go back to the drawing board and figure out a way to work together to get something.

Now, if you are confused as to what you want out of a situation and always seem indecisive; well, you're forced to ride the wave of uncertainty and that can be worse than not getting what you want out of a situation. So take the next wave in, sit on the beach for a while, and then head back out to catch might find the ride to be a little more enjoyable.
