Same. I hate avoiding people but there are a few people, if I don’t, they will try to make me part of their daily routine.
Yesterday’s chat at this time becomes today’s chat at this time, becomes tomorrow’s chat at this time, becomes next month’s chat at this time.
It’s a road I’ve been down many times.
It’s flattering that someone wants me to be the habit they just can’t break, but it’s a lot of time and work and I feel terribly guilty if I don’t comply properly.
