Going back to school this October

Yes you read that heading right and if you have been keeping tabs on my Instagram page, this won’t be a surprise. I am going back to school this October and I can’t wait to get started. I have been thinking of going back to university for sometime now. There has been a degree on my mind to study and I have finally decided to take the bull by the horn, and run with it. Life is too short not to follow your heart. When you follow your hearts, you don’t have any regrets.

 

Going back to school this October

This October, I will starting my first degree in Bsc (Honours) Psychology with The Open University. I have had an interest and a natural flair for Psychology for as long as I can remember. It has always be on my mind. I find the science of the mind very fascinating and I am super excited about pursuing this degree and life after. The fact that I am now going down this route after 2 degrees doesn’t really surprise me. Deep down, I knew this would happen at some point in my life. It was just a matter of when.

Business as Usual

Going back to school and doing what I do will be a test but I know it will all be fine. I will be posting on the blog as regularly as I can. Looking at it all, I still aim to post at least once a day on here. I also plan to keep posting content on my YouTube channel and social media platforms. It will take a lot of planning and determination, but this blog and my other online jobs are important to me. Which is why I plan to keep on going. I enjoy my online jobs, so apart from them being sources of income, they will also be a good distraction from my books.

Adult education is becoming more and more common thanks to the wonders of technology and flexible degrees/universities. I won’t have dreamt of starting a degree from the comfort of my home and being able to join in online with others n the classroom. Just like I won’t have thought of earning an income from home 15 years ago. None of that was possible in my reality back then, but times have changed for the better and I am making the most of this flexible life. Wish me luck 😊

How to Handle Difficult People in Your Life

Have you ever experienced those moments when you meet someone who is impossible to deal with? You know, the kind who aren’t cooperative, who refuse to see things from another perspective other than theirs or who are inconsiderate. They come in so many forms that are unbearable. No matter how nice you try to be with them, it’s so frustrating trying to get along with them.

I’ve encountered a lot of difficult people in my life. At first I tried to avoid them as much as I could but hiding from them didn’t make them go away. Instead I devised new methods to handle difficult people. Here are some tips you’ll find helpful.

 

  1. Rise above their behaviour

If you’ve met a difficult person, chances are that you have tried to reason with them. But in the end, you realize that their behaviour beats all reason. Don’t react to their irrational behaviour with irritation, frustration or aggression. It’s not worth it and it only makes the situation worse.

What you should do is to not partake in their irrational behaviour. Don’t react to it, rationalize it or beat them at their game. And no matter how annoying their behaviour is don’t snap back. Just let them be.

 

  1. Set boundaries with everyone especially difficult people

Difficult people try to assert themselves on others for some strange reason. If you give in, believe me they will continue to with the crazy behaviour.  The way to deal with this is to set healthy boundaries between you and that person.

When they try to assert themselves on you, you have to draw the line and tell them that they can’t treat you that way, and then move on. Sometimes you just have to put your foot down otherwise their irritable behaviour is going to continue.

  1. See through their drama

Difficult people don’t act difficult just because they decided to. There’s some underlying reason behind their behaviour. Sadly, difficult people don’t know how to communicate what they want to others. So they create drama, because that’s the only way they know how to communicate with others.

When you look at the situation in this light, it makes you feel compassion towards them. So before you react badly, make sure you pause for a few minutes to think about this. As you show compassion and show them that there is a better way they can communicate their wants clearly, then they would change.

 

  1. Don’t take it personally

Facing difficult people can make you feel horrible with yourself, lower your self-esteem and feel guilty for being resentful towards them. All this affects your mood and attitude to others. Their behaviour is not directed at making you feel bad but rather they don’t know any other way to communicate with others.

For the sake of your peace of mind, don’t take what they do personally. Focus on achieving your goals and living your amazing life. When you allow their annoying behaviour to get to your nerves, it distorts your day and makes your relationship with others go sour.
