If you’re like me, I know you hate last minute cancels. I mean, back in the day, calling off plans at the last minute was seen as rude. Now it’s like a fixture of social life. It’s annoying because you could have been doing something else. But the best ways to deal with cancels is just learning to adapt. Not to overthink it. Reality is, that sometimes something unexpected can happen that throws our plans out the window. So have a Plan B already parked just in case, and adjust whatever it is you’ve planned to a later time if possible. Don’t let it put you a bad mood. Make other plans and have a little fun. Grab a nice dinner. Treat yourself at Starbucks or meet up with a friend for dinner. On the next meetup, when they apologize for canceling, you’ll be able to say something like, “No worries! I actually met up with a friend I haven’t seen in a while, and we had a really great time.” It’s normal to be disappointed, but like everything in life, disappointment should be handled with grace.
