Knowing Your Limits

I really want to take this time to share something that is talked about all the time but people like me always ignore. KNOW YOUR LIMITS! Start by being honest with yourself. Do you really think you can take that sixth class and do well this semester? Or do you really think you should say yes to new opportunities when you don't even have time for it. These are the exact problems I am facing right now. I have been saying YES to EVERYTHING when it is humanly impossile to actually achieve ALL those goals in given time. This weekend I had to slow down, cancel a lot of plans, and truly reevaluate what is important for me right now in this time frame. Something as simple as pausing for a few minutes allowed me to focus my attention on the two most important things to me right now which are school and my mental health. Your priorities might be different than mine, so I encourage you to take the time to pause and think if you are putting your energy towards the things that matter to you the most. 

Love, 

Sumiya

    Very true, self-care and knowing what you can and can't do is important. I'm still learning this as well and learning how to say no. Because saying no doesn't make you a bad person, just that you're not the right person at the moment to do that.

    You’re right @Sumiya Choudhry. I want to do many things in a short time but I end up doing nothing. I think I have to prioritize things and do the works that matter.
