Okay, so you’re busy.
No surprise: I am busy too. And “being busy” or “not having time” are excuses we got used to.
Every day, you and I get 24 hours to do the things we want to do – so indeed, we have time. The actual question is about priorities.
I get that people don’t say, “This is less of a priority for me” or “Actually, I have more important stuff to do.” We don’t want to offend anyone.
However, that is what “I am busy” translates to.
Setting the right priorities is totally okay, and I won’t be offended. But you should know that I am adjusting my priorities as well – and I don’t have time for people that have no time for me.
I am always busy, and I always got time for you.
It’s all a matter of priorities.
