A little bit like Fanny Price in Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park, part of my adulthood has definitely involved un-learning the supposed “need” to accept unacceptable things and to learn to say No when needed. Jessica at Femme Fraîche puts it more succinctly:
“Stop saying Yes to shit you hate.”
Hear, hear! While taking on projects that are a stretch can help you grow, shit you hate should be on a permanent No list. Don’t you agree?
Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
