Happy Sunday friends! I’m feeling a little feisty, so today I’m disagreeing with a quote.
You cannot say “yes” to everyone. Everyone has a max out, and while those limits may be different, you cannot be all things to all people. With all the changes going on in my life right now I’ve had to scale back on commitments. I cannot have every week day scheduled as I need to allow time to travel for interviews, and job searching in itself is something that takes time.
Say No. Say “I’d Rather Not” If something is bringing you anxiety or stress or getting in the way of a good time, let it go. Be polite and honor your commitments, but guard your time. It’s precious. We each get 24 hours in the day, and we all have different needs and priorities. Lack of planning on their part, does not automatically constitute an emergency for you.
Do you guard your time? Or are you a people pleaser who says “YES” even when your heart means “no”?
