Well, it happened again as I almost took on the RESCUER role
after a phone call from an individual who wanted editing help
with his biography and I had been recommended. How can you
say "no" after that introduction? I would be rejecting two people:
the person who recommended me and the person needing help.
I've always tried to keep everyone happy even at my own expense.
You think after SURVIVING two demanding marriages and divorces,
I should have learned, but I'm still a work in progress. Smile...
Finally after lots of thought, prayer and inner voices arguing inside,
REASON prevailed and I decided to say "No." The requester was quite
polite and accepted my decision well. I'm happy and realize again
how difficult it is to keep priorities in mind and my life in BALANCE!
