In the next couple of weeks, I’m likely to be more selfish with my time… i apologise in advance for this but I have some things I need to finish… nothing personal, I just need to say “no” a bit more often.
In fact, I’m not sorry! I’ll be polite, I have the right to say no, doesn’t make me a bad person… or a bad friend.
Assertiveness is a balancing act isn’t it?
To have the right to ask for what you want, remembering that the other party has the right to say no. To accept that you can care about people, without them being your responsibility.
there’s loads more, I might add to this later
