I can so relate. I love it!

Yes! I so get that! And my 17 year old daughter has people pleaser syndrome as well...I'm trying to help her realize that it is okay to say "no" and sometimes it is necessary....

Great post, Susan. Crazy dream! I love the line "That doesn't work for me right now." What I've started using is, "I'm sorry, my schedule won't allow it." Like it's not my fault, talk to my schedule! My schedule is such a taskmaster! It allows me to pass off the blame and not feel guilty.

Ok, I have Tupperware angst, too(and am seriously hanging onto the Salad Shooter that I have never used, but my mother, who has been dead for 10 years, gave it to me.)

But I say yes for all the wrong reasons--I say yes, because I really want to say no and I feel guilty for wanting to always say no. I'm sure that is some sort of weird psychological mess up. I think you are great for always wanting to say yes.

You are a good person and I admire you for that.
