Saying “No” More Often
I’m the kind of guy that likes helping out other people.
Sometimes, that means putting my own things aside to do so.
And when I do that, I put myself in a bind because I am prioritizing other people’s things over mine causing me more stress later on.
Lately, I’ve been saying “no” more because I have more responsibilities. I’ve been spreading myself too thin and I don’t have the bandwidth at this point.
I feel bad when I am unable to help out and I hope people understand but I am starting to get better at prioritizing what matters.
And more importantly, putting myself first.
