Entertaining OVERWHELM is a surefire way to keep her around.
Overwhelm is a terrible houseguest.
She talks constantly, creates a lot of unnecessary drama, consumes massive amounts of time and energy, exhausts you, and does not actually help at ALL when clearly a bit of help would be welcomed.
When she shows up at your house this week (and she likely will b/c she is notorious for showing up places uninvited) DO NOT entertain her.
❌Do not invite her in.
❌Do not offer her a cold beverage.
❌Definitely do not feed her.
❌Do not let her bring her bags in.
Just open the door and kindly ask her…
Why are you here?
What do you need from me, exactly?
How can I help you?
She hates pointed questions because questions help solve problems and she doesn’t want you to solve problems…she wants to convince you that you can’t.
