A Writer’s Notebook - Saying “No” More Often

Saying “No” More Often
I’m the kind of guy that likes helping out other people.
Sometimes, that means putting my own things aside to do so.
And when I do that, I put myself in a bind because I am prioritizing other people’s things over mine causing me more stress later on.
Lately, I’ve been saying “no” more because I have more responsibilities. I’ve been spreading myself too thin and I don’t have the bandwidth at this point.
I feel bad when I am unable to help out and I hope people understand but I am starting to get better at prioritizing what matters.
And more importantly, putting myself first.

Hi, I’m Jamie Pham. I currently live in Southern California working as a freelance writer, a social media manager, and run my own clothing line (One Two Threads). I’ve carried around a notebook with me for years now and usually jot down notes, ideas, and random things so I want to treat this newsletter as an extension of that.
