“Love yourself enough to say no to others’ demands on your time and energy” – Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Guidance Cards

This is usually what runs through my head when I’m asked to do something that I don’t really want to do:

“But I really don’t feel like doing this …”
“Damn it, I’ll just do it. Grr.”

What’s that? You too!

GUEST POST BY YVETTE LUCIANO.

Speaking as someone who has been on the other side of Pink October, I completely agree with everything Jess mentioned HERE.

It was hell in a post-pack.

The first time I really understood how much I needed alone time was in high school. It was school holidays and I had spent a few days hopping around between my friend’s houses, bag full of enough clothes to last me indefinitely. It was early evening and I was hungover and tired.

I called my dad to come and pick me up, went home and shut myself away in my room with a movie (How Stella Got Her Groove Back) and a whole satay chicken pizza to myself.
