If you're a people-pleaser, this one's for you. As a fellow recovering people-pleaser, saying yes to others is practically a lifestyle.

I'm still battling this cold (surprise, surprise) but I really hope I'm finally on the tail-end of it and I expel the phlegm like the little girl on The Exorcist. My cat, however, is making it difficult to write this as she demands to press the buttons on my keyboard.
