Reforming Play-dough: What to Do with Other Peoples' Expectations???

So what does this all mean??? How can this help me, or help you??? Basically, I have learned to be kind to myself first and then I am naturally kind to others. What do I mean by this??? I mean that you need to know yourself....If you know that you are an introverted person that needs her alone time, remember that when making plans with people. If they want to spend every waking moment with you, take a step back and say to yourself, I know that if I spend every waking moment with you on this upcoming weekend I will want to kill you 5 hours in, and then you plan ahead. Plan to meet up from 2-4pm and then meet up again for dinner at 6pm. And if things change and something comes up before dinner tell them, “It’s not a good time but maybe we can meet up tomorrow for breakfast instead, I will call you later.” They will probably be disappointed but it is a hell of a lot better then you freaking out because you tried to make everyone but yourself happy. And even if you only freak out on yourself or your partner 2 days or weeks later is that really healthy???? If you realize that I am not perfect, you are not perfect but that’s ok. We are both deserving of love and acceptance. I am allowed to make my own decisions and so are you. No offense!!! :o)
