Not gonna happen
Heck to the No
No, thank you.
"Hey Elizabeth, will you _____?"
Even with all of the options listed above, I can never say "No."
I like to say that this is a genetic defect. Momma has it too. Hehe. This usually leads to an exorbitant degree of stress.
Recently, I've realized I have too much on my plate, and my surgery solidified that feeling. I had to meet with a very dear friend yesterday and tell him that although I had said "yes" to spearheading a project for him, I needed to now say "no." Ugh, can I please tell you that saying no after saying yes is WORSE than just saying no in the first place? Friend was SO understanding and totally agreed that I needed to focus on myself and school first, but I felt horrible!
Goal for myself: Learn to say "no" from the start.
Happy Tuesday! xoxo, E
