Too good for you
“Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently.”

Always check up on somebody
Why? Because you never know when they could be close to killing themselves or coiled up on the bathroom floor crying their heart out because they don’t know what to do or where to go. Especially if you know of things like this they’ve done in the past, check up them. Watch them carefully for signs of sadness, or anger, or anxiety. You could be saving a life.
