This time around, I will say "no" more often.
"No. I'm not going."
"No. It's too much for me."
"No. I can't. I simply can't."
I plan to say I'm sorry, too.
But only when I really am sorry.
And only when there is something to be sorry about.
I need not apologize for being ill, for taking care of myself.
I fear that if I get too tethered this next time around, it will be the end of me. As frazzled as I may be and as flitty the flight, I must fly from now on. I must.
A thank you to aussiegall for sharing this perfect photo on flickr.
