I have to say that when you bite off more than you can chew it really makes you feel stressed and a little angry at yourself for agreeing to do so much.
I think that sometimes people have a hard time saying no. That happens to my sister all of the time and then she becomes resentful, but she continues to do it.
I think that you have to learn to say no otherwise you will not be able to enjoy life because you will always be doing favors for people. Helping someone out is great, but to do it at the expense of your own workload and time away from your family is a little bit of a problem.
For example, my sister agreed to go to her son’s girl friend’s cousin’s baby shower instead of coming to my home for my birthday party. She could not be at two places at one time, but felt it was easier to turn me down because I was family. Since she did not know this person well she felt bad saying no.
I got over it but, but these are the consequences of when you bite off more than you can chew.
You can hurt someone's feelings or damage a relationship if you continue to bite off more than you can chew.
