Have many groups of friends
“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket,” Williams says. You can move to another group of friends, when you are excluded from a group. It would be better if you already had other group of friends to fall back to prior to the exclusion.
Don’t Ostracize others.
Manage your mood and never give anybody, either kids or spouse a silent treatment, lest you damage your relationship.
“If you absolutely feel you have to remove yourself from the situation, give an end point to it,” Williams advises. For example, say, “I can’t talk to you right now, so I’m going to leave for a few minutes. When I come back, we can talk.”
