I can go for long patches of wondering how I could ever feel anything other than bullet proof. And then it happens – I’m booked up back to back and I’m asked at the last minute by a dear friend to help them out and it clashes with something important I have scheduled.

What to do? The obvious answer is to explain that I’d love to. I’m already scheduled with something immovable then – can a different time work?

However – have you ever been uncomfortable to take that step?

I so have!

I still do sometimes.

Although with baby steps it’s getting more do-able.

So what helps?

Pausing and considering the knock-on effects of not doing what I originally said I’d do…

Taking a few calming breaths and centering myself…

Deciding to honour us both and tell the truth! Oh what a relief when I do.

Take away
