Seriously think things through today. Don’t only look at how the situation affects you, but how it will impact the ones you love. It’s hard being at the top, but you wanted to sit on the throne. Now you have to make the tough choices and deal with the responsibility. But you can do so by taking charge and not allowing others to manipulate your emotions and try to be more than they are. Sometimes being the boss means, acting the part and telling others to shut up and sit down. Remember, that justice is on your side.
Being the one that others depend on is not an easy job. It puts a great deal of pressure on your shoulders, and stress on your being. But remember you asked for this role and you accepted its consequences. You may not have thought things through that lead to the situation you’re in now. But don’t make that same mistake now. Those that love you will support your decisions, though they may not be happy about it. You can still turn this event into a win by staying strong, fighting for your domain and calling others on the carpet.
Remember they have no more control over the situation than you do. Don’t give them any additional authority than they deserve. Their actions have cost this situation more, than anything you have or have not done!
