Don’t let people control or affect your decisions through guilt or derision. If the only reason you might change a decision is due to someone else’s negative response, consider the purpose your decision is intended to serve and whether your reason for changing your decision is worth not fulfilling that purpose. For example, if someone’s trying to guilt you into joining a complaint with which you disagree or accepting a settlement that undermines your interests, carefully consider whether soothing that person’s sensibilities or interests are worth the loss of your goals.
