I have the option of coming into work this evening to help paint. My boss and the other worker will both be there. The boss tells me ‘it’s up to me’ whether I want to come or not, I told her I’d rather not, I don’t like painting, but then she goes on and on about how much there is to do and how she’ll just have to come in to work tomorrow to finish it up.
I would rather not go. There are already two of them there and only two rooms to paint. If I go, I get paid for it and get a free hamburger. If I don’t go, I just have a free, less stressful evening at home.
I’m leaning towards not going, but I am feeling guilty about it. And I wish I wasn’t. There is no reason to feel guilty. I never said I would be there, there are 2 people working so it’s not like I’m actually needed, and it’s my choice and I’d rather not go. I’ll either guilt myself into going or feel guilty all night (and then get pissed off when I go in Monday and the boss goes on about how long she worked, how hard it was, and how sore and tired it made her). 7 months ago
I was in suffering state, filled with all negativity about a very imp decision of my life. But finally I took courage to put it off since i wasn’t happy. Though parents bit unhappy but I know they will overcome out of it. May god give strength to all, those who arew no hurt by it. But my mind is free of guilty b’cze its qn of my life.
Also taken imp lesson, to take a firm decision then stick to it. 18 months ago
I feel guilty every time I get cheered on this – especially when I’m not feeling this at all right now; especially when it’s getting more cheers than my clowning goal.
I’ll delete the goal for now until I feel the need for it again. 20 months ago
it is time for me to practice saying NO, NO, and more NO’s.
Some people recently have become quite bold with asking for things..
lately on my list it has been for driving, but also errands, and favours too! If I haven’t heard from you for many weeks and months at a time, chances are you aren’t my bff! And though that sounds harsh, honestly if I only hear from you when you NEED something from me….. there is something amiss.
What I am realizing:
I don’t have to ‘help’ every person I come in contact with.. nor do I have to say yes to people when it JUST serves THEIR needs..
I’m saying yes to ME – for a change and more often!!

My sis offered me some ice-cream and I almost accepted just to be nice, but in the end I managed to say “no, thanks”. 2 years ago
I’m checking out another web site like this.
Aside from the ‘goofy’ name, it looks like a real serious effort at a To-Do web site!
-w/ a neat little To-Do List Booklet Printer!
-they purchase carbon offsets
-set general “goals”, & set specific “tasks” to get them done
-PDA & XML export/import
-contexts (a goal “for work” or “for home”)
-prioritize on a (neg.1)-to-3 level
-“Terms” are 1/3 as long as the other one I was leaning towards; & I get to keep my own copyrights!
-If you’ve got an hour to burn, but can’t choose, it has a logarithmic mathematical computerized bit-crunching program to crunch all YOUR NUMBERS and give you the best option for the time being!!
-private sharing options, (among friends?). ($)
-On the down-side, No “cheers,” or picture uploads. & Old completed tasks are deleted after 6 mo. (unless $)
& I’m AVOIDING (like the plague) www.stickk.com, www.my50.com, (& blogger.com & blogspot.com?) 2 years ago
