Roll the dice and play the part of the fool. Now is not the time to take chances and act or react on a whim. Not everyone has your best interest at heart. Make sure you know what you’re getting into. Don’t allow others to pressure you and do your own research! You are the one who is accountable for your choices, not someone else. So take charge and don’t be afraid to say “No and that’s it!”
You are ultimately accountable for your actions. Don’t let your desperation cloud your judgement and allow you to be pressured into something that isn’t intended to be good for you! Be cautious of the ulterior motives of others who claim to be experts, or have a sure fired bet! They’re not interested in helping you, they’re interested in controlling you for their own selfish gains.
It’s ok to say “No”, and if they get upset; that should be your clue that something isn’t right with this. If they up their forceful pressure; don’t be afraid to say “No and that’s enough”! Then use your own control and walk away from their manipulation. You can do this! And for today, it may be vitally important that you do!
