You can finally put an end to the friction you’ve been feeling with an authority figure if you just give in and agree to let them be the boss! You might be pushing back just for the sake of pushing back, or maybe you want to show them how tough you are. Either way, this isn’t the time for it. Your goals are no different from theirs, so focus on the areas you two agree about. You are making this harder than it needs to be. Give in and give yourself a break.
