I'm mostly to blame though. My problem? I don't know how to say no. I am the queen of wanting to do everything and letting myself getting talked into everything. It's one of the things I love most about myself, but also one of the traits that will end to my downfall.
My job is insane right now. Seriously insane. I've allowed myself to get pulled into helping out with way too many events that end up getting ultimately getting dumped on me, and I am being spread too thin. I'm going to need to focus on myself more so I don't go bat shit insane.
I hate saying no to people when they ask for help, so much so that I run myself ragged in an attempt to please everyone. What ends up happening is I burn out, go crazy, and end up ditching things for a week or so in order to get my sanity back. If I just said no in the first place, I'd feel better and wouldn't end up looking crazy when I have a panic attack over my life.
I need to learn to say “I just can’t right now … my plate is overloaded as it is.”
Sorry this post is so whiny, but my husband has to be tired of hearing me bitch to him, so I'm whining to you all :). Back to my normal training talk tomorrow...when it's really Friday!!
