There are some activities you will be involved in now that you would never do on your own. You might wonder how you allowed someone to persuade you into taking up a challenge but now you have done so, you won’t chicken out.
You don’t have control over all circumstances. It is not, for instance, within your power to predict how other people are going to behave. When a situation goes wrong because someone else decides to stir up trouble, don’t blame yourself.
