I've been on a few tours now and here is something I noticed: Most people are cool if you're cool and if they're not cool when you're being cool to them and they're consistently in a permanent state of not cool maybe they're just not a happy human and you should just let them have that LOL.
Go be your happy unicorn self anyway and find other cool people to spend time with. People that are happy to be there. Maybe it's the new person. Sure, maybe they're only happy because "they don't know how this goes yet" BUT that doesn't mean they don't genuinely feel like a kid in a candy store and that might be helpful to be around. Good for the soul. A reminder of what it's like to fall in love with tour life. And if it's a bad day, and no one's cool, maybe it's just a bad day and that's all it needs to be?
Take a second to yourself. Re-center. Walk away. Tomorrow is a new town, a new venue, a new chance for the day to not suck. What do you do with tough people or tough days or tough people on tough days?
