I'm trying my hardest to be assertive with babysitting and what I am able to do and not able to do. I first said I can only do a few night a week....and that was fine with my friend and she said she wouldn't expect more from me anyways. But they were just words. And definitely not truths. It's possible she could go away for work so that's a week possible two away. I tried to say I couldn't do that as it's to much for me. I have my own life as well yeah. The response I got was 'I'll sort out so my her partner could take a few days off and then you can do the rest' So basically I'm not being listed to or if I am it's be totally ignored. I'm stressed and feel like Sh!t. I'm almost at the end of my rope as it. I'm so over everything right now. I'm doing my best to hold out just a little bit longer but my fingers and grip are getting weaker. I find it hard enough to be assertive as it is...let alone when I do and it gets dismissed or totally ignored. Sorry.
