Follow your gut feeling today. Don’t dismiss the inner voices making suggestions about what you need to be doing, checking up on, or avoiding. Don’t let others try to guilt you into doing something and stop feeling bad about saying “no” to something you don’t really want to do. It’s your schedule, keep it in your domain and be the ruler over it.
Your gut feelings today are right on target. Make sure you’re listening and stop feeling guilty about being responsible over your own tasks and desires. You do plenty for others and today you have things on your schedule that need or that you want to do for you.
Why should you sacrifice your plans because someone else couldn’t be accountable to the commitments they made? Yes there’s a time and place to make sacrifices for a friend, for family or for someone you really care about. Today isn’t that day. Seriously, if you give into the guilt, you’ll never have time for you and what you need to get done.
If someone gets upset because you say “no” to their request, than they had an expectation of you and your time that they didn’t have a right to hold. Is that really your fault? Only if you made a commitment to them earlier that you’re not keeping today. So why are you feeling guilty? Maybe if they had asked you a few days ago for some help, you could have been there. But don’t give into their manipulation of guilt. That’s them being selfish and self-centered about their needs.
