I am learning, slowly, the power of “no.”
As well as the power of “your mental health is more important than a grade.”
And it’s a conversation with myself that I’ve put off for too long and it might be too late. But, I am stretched too thin and trying to do too much. It’s affecting the quality of my work and my life. And a lot of the reason it’s gotten this far is because of an inability and a fear of saying the word “no.” Of telling people that no, I can’t do that. No, it’s not interesting to me.
I’m really hoping it’s not too late. And I’m really hoping I’m not going to upset anyone with whatever decision I make. But this is something I need, for me.
And it already feels better to say it. I just really hope it’s not too late :/
WRITING IT DOWN FEELS BETTER, sorry guys. Never let yourself get in a situation where you are hurting yourself just because you want to make sure other people are happy. It is not worth it. (FYI this is school related, I just realized how vague this post was omg)
