At first, saying yes to everything was a boon to my social life and my career. Then my workload started to get out of hand and I became racked with guilt
Throughout my life, I have revelled in saying yes.
I should qualify that straight away by saying that, for the first half of my life, the only offers I got were social; saying yes to those was a joy. Doors were opened and my mind was stretched and then blown. I was lucky enough at the time to have a place to live and the means to put food on the table, so, no matter what went wrong, nothing could really hurt me.
