Don’t give into pressure
Recognize when the only reason you’re going to do something is to please someone else, but it doesn’t serve you and even does you a disservice. If your friend is pressuring you to accompany her to the birthday party of a guy she likes because she doesn’t want to go alone, but that’s your only night to relax that month, well, maybe she can just go stag. She’ll survive. If you don’t relax, you may not!
