If you’re like me, you know or have even been that person who makes plans with all intention of following through, and sometimes when the time comes to do so, it’s the last thing you feel like doing.
That’s when the choice comes into play. Will you show up, or will you become that flaky friend? I will do almost anything NOT to flake on a commitment, so instead, I’m honest about my time.
Can I balance meeting a friend for a walk and all the other things in my day? Will I really want to drive 30 minutes to meet a group of dear friends for dinner on the only night my family will all be home together?
I’ve learned over the years that it’s better to be honest about your time and how you commit it than always to say yes (or even worse, maybe) and then have to bail last minute.
