It’s okay to be busy
Taylor Lorenz

Interesting POV. Personally I hate it when people tell me “I’m busy”. I think it implicitly suggests that I (receiving this information) am not busy and therefore the ‘busy’ person’s time is more valuable than mine.

Totally get if people are unavailable but that person can always just say “thanks for the invite, I’ll follow up when I can” or “thanks, but I’m not available” etc.
