Some folks are over-committed and over-scheduled. Asking for help and getting it is hard these days. Some folks don’t know when to say no and mean it. I am a person who says yes to a lot of people and then I have given myself away. There are situations where people have mad at me for not honoring my word.
When you give yourself to the core you have nothing left for yourself. Its good to be honest with yourself and others when you can’t do for others. Don’t be taken for granted or advantage of. Prioritizing who you help with those who are closest to you is a good rule of thumb.
Be good to yourself and then you can be good to others.
