You can’t please everyone.

I’ve been learning alot recently and one of the hardest lessons for me was saying no to things that aren’t healthy for me. Right now that means anything that makes me overly busy. Its been hard because I feel like I’m letting people down but I need to remember that I”m taking care of myself.  I’m not saying that I say no to everything but I used to be the person who always said yes and that wasn’t healthy.

I know this isn’t a long or amazing post but If one other person needs ‘permission’ to say no then I’ve done my part.

  1. I have been working on that a lot myself. When I am overly busy my spiritual life and my exercise take a big tumble and those are two very important areas in my life. My hubby and I have gotten to the point where there are times we will screen our calls because we don’t want to go out or spend time talking to others.

  2. Me too! I was always the “yes” person but after being so stressed out over trying to please everyone, I just couldn’t do it anymore. It’s great that we try to do stuff for others but sometimes, we need to take care of ourselves first. If we can’t be healthy and happy then it makes it harder to be helpful to others, right?
