This is easy to solve, but I know it might be hard for you to accept the way I might handle this problem. This is not a big issue at all. You just please people too much. You have to put your foot down first off. People need to understand that you come first before them. Because only you can make yourself happy. They are not going to be able to be there for you when you faint from exhaustion. Sweetie, simple way to handle this is, next person who comes and ask you to do something, this is what you do first, Take the time to explain what you got planned for the week. Make sure they understand that you are only one person. For example, well, I got a problem, I gotta be outta here on Tuesday, which is very important because I have a deadline, you can either help me out by buying the ice cream and joining me and my dad at home, which will benefit both you being able to spend time with your dad and your friend, which is super, because you will be able to have two people you like at the same time. How about switching it up, by asking them to help you instead of you helping them, and if they are just low down selfish, omg! why are you dealing with people like that, one less selfish person in your life, the game is give and take, not take take take. Make yourself happy, even if it hurts others, in the end, the people who really love you, will understand. The ones that won't have to deal with it. END of story. Trust yourself, because only you will have to answer to yourself at the end of the day, when things don't get done. Okay sweetie Goodluck. Keep it real and remember, don't exhaust yourself on other peoples behalf.
