That said, there comes a time when it's necessary to step away from Other People's
It's hard to say no when someone asks for help. Maybe because we know it's so hard to ask for help. I'm not talking about committees at work, or that person who regularly drags your attention and energy to what is important only to them (oh, right now you're picturing that person, aren't you? yes you are. it's OK.). These people? File them under "To Be Let Go". The ones who genuinely need you, when you make room in your priorities for them, that's getting a grip on what really matters.
