What can’t I say no to? I can never say “no” to someone asking for my help.
Yes, even though I am very guilty of putting others’ needs before my own, it’s just in my nature to go into action when others ask me to help them out. “Will you fill up the gas tank?” “Will you go buy groceries?” “Will you sit with me awhile and let me muse?”
It is rare for me to say “no” to this at all. I can’t turn others down when they are in need. It’s a trait I’ve learned from my father, who rarely turns down a plea for help from others.
However, I know I give too much of myself in this way. I need to take better care of myself, to not say “no” to helping myself out.
