I have to wonder if I’m too obliging; if I say “yes” too much.
I’m not really talking about friends or family, but work.
I have no issues with saying yes to my family; I love them and if I can help or provide some small happiness, then I am going to go for it.
Most of the time I say yes when it comes to my work, and this often leaves my head spinning. Taking on projects, striving for a set deadline when an extension has been offered. I say no to that, I say “no thanks, I’ll make the original deadline.” Unless it’s impossible.
Then I say no. I hate saying no. But sleep is important to me. I’m no good to anyone if I’m that sleep-deprived (more so than from being a new mommy).
