How to stop being a people pleaser

How to stop being a people pleaser

“Can you come to this meeting?” No. “Yes.”“Are you free on Saturday night?” No, I’m watching Spiral. “Yes.”“Can I borrow your black jacket?” No. “Yes.”“Would you like pizza?” No. “Yes.”“Have you got five minutes?” No. I don’t have five seconds. “Yes.”“Can you pick me up?” No. “Yes.”“Make me a coffee while you’re at it.” Sod off. “Sure.”Every time I want to say no, I start to worry about inconveniencing the person doing the asking. Or upsetting them. Or disappointing them. (How much do I hate that word, the bane of my life: I’m not cross, I’m just – pause for effect – disappointed.) Or...

Trumpworld coronavirus tracker: Who’s positive, who’s negative

Photo: Saul Loeb/AFP via Getty ImagesAn outbreak of COVID-19 has struck the White House — including the president himself — just weeks before the 2020 election. Why it matters: If the president can get infected, anyone can. And the scramble to figure out the scope of this outbreak is a high-profile, high-stakes microcosm of America's larger failures to contain the virus and to stand up a contact-tracing system that can respond to new cases before they have a chance to become outbreaks.COVID-19 positives: COVID-19 negatives: TBD: Among Democrats: Editor's note: This article has been updated...

If confirmed, she would give conservatives a...
