Hyacinth Girl You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
I am a yes person. It’s not always a good thing, especially when I say yes to something then need to cancel later because I didn’t think it through.
I think I have learned to say maybe, which is almost as good as saying no. For the last few weeks, instead of committing to a yes or no when someone asks me to do something I’m not sure about, I just say maybe. It has worked wonders for my level of guilt! If everything goes as planned and I finish my homework, then I am free to go out and have fun. But if (like usual) I am falling behind and need to stay in for the night, I haven’t made any firm commitments, so I don’t feel as bad.
I think I’m getting the hang of maybes, and perhaps saying no as well.
