Feeling overwhelmed, as I often do as the Christmas season approaches. Lots of stuff going on, and like many women I am conditioned to feel bad whenever I have to say No. Even when saying No is key to maintaining mental health.

So here it is. No. With the following explanation: "You have a great crowdfunding project/I love that you're raising money for a charity/I share your outrage about X and want to help. But between bailing out a family member in a financial crisis and supporting charities in my community, I am completely tapped out."

I hear you. Best wishes to your family. I hope things ease up over the holidays--and that you get to enjoy them for yourself.

Thanks. In a perfect world, we'd replace Christmas with a day of service, and celebrate the winter solstice with a chocolate & book giving holiday. Maybe when my robot armies and I come to power....

And for some reason this is the hardest time of year to set and enforce them. Even though it's also the time boundaries most needed.
