From Wise Mind Money …
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about all of the little things I do to maintain my sanity. One of the things I talked about was finding my “why”.
It wasn’t so long ago that I was in a pretty low place. It wasn’t that I was dealing with some major life tragedy or hardship, it was that I was overwhelmed and exhausted. I’m not alone in my problem of taking on too much; oftentimes “yes” comes easier than “no.” We don’t want to hurt people’s feelings or seem unhelpful, despite the fact that we’re already in over our heads with responsibilities.
I struggled with the same thing, except instead of not being able to tell other people “no,” I had difficulty telling myself “no.”
