Leave Them Hanging

I went to work today and my coworker made some snide comment about me before he even said hello. Then he tried to play it off as a joke and he went in for a fist bump to show that we were cool to everybody else in the room. And I left him hanging. I refused to bump his fist. He tried to bump fists a few times, but I would have none of it. He actually asked me for a bump. He begged me for a bump. I responded by flipping him off. Everybody else laughed at him. I regained the upper hand. You can do the same thing. All you have to do to get control of a situation is to leave them hanging. This is an important life lesson that you can use everyday. You can apply it to relationships, friendships, and in the workplace. You are in control as long as other people want what you refuse to give them. It’s not about pride. It’s about self-respect.
