The old story tells me I can't achieve my goals and also be well-rested. The old story tells me there must be sacrifice. As someone who tends to listen for what others need so as to feel valued and important by providing it, it's automatic that the sacrifice comes in the form of self. So when I see a blank space on my calendar I take that to mean I'm available to assist others. Though am I really?
Dear Strong Woman - There is a difference between an excuse and an explanation.
