Over-committing myself leads to stress, anxiety and self-destructive behaviors.
Self-destruction spirals if I don’t constantly keep it in check.
I go down the rabbit hole when my demons get the better of me.
I don’t want to die from this sickness, or retain permanent damage to my health.
Saying ‘yes’ to everything and everyone all the time will eventually kill me, if I don’t stop it now. Saying ‘yes’ when I want to say ‘no’ starts the cycle of over-committing.
My only defense is being brutally honest, unafraid and unashamed to speak my truth. The whole, ugly truth, without judgment.
The truth will set me free, and save my life.
