When things are really busy and you are stressed out, you might fight, fight, fight, then give in when you find that you have some free time.
Of course, this happens only when, and if, you know it is a reasonable request.
Sometimes, in the moment, it is just unreasonable timing.
Or, and this can also be true…
Sometimes in the moment, you over-react.
If you fight, then give in, you may have low will power or you may just have too many things going on in your (work) life at once. Take a step back, breathe and stop fighting. Say yes, or no and give them a reasonable time frame. You and they will be much happier if you all stop fighting, especially when it is for no reason at all.
