If You're the Type of Person Who Commits to Too Many Things

For all you unlucky ones that think saying "Yes" all the time is easier than saying "No" once.

If You're the Type of Person Who Commits to Too Many Things
Adrianne Batausa

If you’re the type of person who says “Yes” to everything, then you probably both smile and cringe at the thought, and that’s okay.

Every minute of your day is probably taken up and there’s a good chance you haven’t gotten a full night’s sleep in forever. You might even find yourself saying “Sorry I can’t because of…” or some variation of that all the time.

You probably also feel major FOMO when you can’t attend an event or participate

…Even if you know damn well you were too busy to go that day even if you wanted to.

And if you really think about it, some of these things you commit to, you don’t even want to do, or need to do for that matter.

But you just do it for some reason. And there’s ALWAYS a reason.

Just remember that there are going to be times when you need to realize that too much is too much.

You are going to drive yourself crazy and spreading yourself thin doesn’t do either party any good.

Remember to breathe.

Try to accept only the things where you want to be the best. Prioritizing gives yourself the best chance at actually being the best in each endeavor, rather than only giving 50% in multiple things. Certain things deserve more focus from you.

And you have to remind yourself that even if you say no, you’re probably over-thinking it, and no one will dislike you for it.

And sometimes committing and backing out might be worse than just saying no in the first place. So if your instinct tells you to say no... say no.

But you’ll probably still end up saying yes anyways.

And honestly, you probably have a lot to show for it and a lot of people are probably thankful for all that you do for them regardless of what’s on your plate.

So keep on and do you!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
