Bowing out of 2 commitments was huge for me, I never do anything like that...ever! I was the person at work that used to get there at 7am, work through lunch, stay until my work was completed, take work home, etc.. I have carried that over to my personal life and I'm not sure how to scale back.
My inability to say no and my need to be seen as a capable person have led me into deep waters and I'm sinking. So, I've decided that I need to once again take a serious look at all the activities I've committed to and start scaling back. There's some things on the list I would never touch as they're too near to my heart but there's others I do out of a sense of obligation so I'm thinking those will be at the top of the list!
Now, one might wonder what I have planned for the nights I want to free up. Watch tv? Go to bed early? Read more? Nope, I hope to entertain more. Yep...more work! BUT I think this is positive work because it leads to building closer relationships with my friends and family. Sometimes I feel so scattered with so many commitments it leads to relationships that don't go beyond the surface and instead I want deeper, more meaningful friendships and relationships.
