Dare of the day – I fired my housekeeper


The housekeeping business belongs to a friend, and I have been putting off firing them for at least a month because I didn’t want her to be upset. I usually agonize over conversations like this (and procrastinate) and end up over-explaining with the intent of not hurting their feelings.
But this thought of doing it as a dare so I could learn to deal with negative emotions inspired me. I called and was confident and concise. She responded politely with no indications of hurt feelings (and I can’t control her feelings however much I might be tempted to try). I feel awesome right now.
