What do you do when you have been knocked off your feet emotionally. This happened to my partner yesterday and me today. What happened ? I tried to do too much. It fried me. I missed returning 2 very important messages. Will anything happen because I did not return the messages? Maybe. The 2 people are irritated with me. What do I do? How do I deal with it? How do I move on from feeling bad that I faltered? Did I lose any business ? No. Did I have more important things that needed to be done? YES. Can I please everyone all the time? No. Have worse things happened ? Yes . All I did was take longer than usual to reply to 2 tweets. So why do I feel bad? I like both people and feel embarrassed it took a day to reply to them. Writing about it has helped. I kept my priorities in line and honestly I have to do that. I have to take care of me before other people.
