Guilty for saying yes - May 14th 2010, 05:40 PM

Last week my friend ask me to meet her somewhere...(something to do with her school) and now I feel guilty for saying yes....like I should say I can't make it. What should I do?


Some say the world will end in fire Some say in ice
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire
But if it had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great And would suffice.

Is there a reason why you feel guilty about it?
Because I get that when I agree on going out somewhere with my friends and all of a sudden I really dont want to do it anymore and get a bad feeling about it. I mostly make myself go in the end and have a lot of fun. Of course there are days where I wished Id stayed at home aswell, but those are quite rare

But when the night is falling
And you cannot find the light
If you feel your dream is dying
Hold tight
You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget you only get what you give

Perhaps "guilty" isn't the right word. I mean, why would you feel guilty about spending time with your friend? Maybe you didn't want to go from the very beginning, and you only said "yes" because you knew it would make her happy... THAT is definitely something to feel guilty about. When I was younger, I used to stretch myself thin with all sorts of commitments to my friends... and I would end up kicking myself in the butt for not having enough "me" time during the weekends.

We can't know for certain why you feel this way. All you can really do is try to use logic/rational thinking, and try to identify what is causing you to feel this way. If you can take care of that, you can get rid of these negative feelings. =) Good luck!
