Oh! jonaj......that frog is just the most! Love his facial expression!
I've got a 'thing' about frogs ever since I bought a beautifully made one at a Fete. He used to lie atop my work computer, peering over the front edge at me!
All my work colleagues would pat/stroke him! His name was 'Froggy'...................
So irritating . . . I had an in law who was so transparent about doing everything for the trade off, you could almost see the cogs ticking. We were brought up to do things without thought of a payback.
In the past this has been a problem for me, but over the years I have developed more self confidence to be assertive and now have no trouble saying no if it is something I can not commit too or don't want to do. I found the more times I politely said no, the easier it got.
I used to but not anymore. I used to want to please everyone. I guess I've grown to understand that you can't please everyone and you have to be happy with yourself above all else. I still do anything and everything that I can for people when asked, but I no longer feel guilty when I say no.
First name Push. Second name Over. It's why I prefer my own company . . . I am just terrible at saying no. I have close friends who know what I am like and they would never put me in that position, bless them.
