“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”
You may get caught up in a tug of war between your friends and family since both will demand your attention. Try and maintain your cool and make decisions based on practicality and sound reasoning. Also, try to handle both parties with tact so that neither end up feeling hurt. Just remember to keep your priorities straight.
