It can be okay to pull out of some things.  If I look at what is stressing me out in my diary, it’s easy to see that some things are non-negotiable and must be faced (eg exams).  But some things can be gotten out of, the people involved probably won’t think any less of me for cancelling, but I might just score enough extra space to breathe (eg social engagements).  It can be okay to say “I know I said yes, but now I’m saying no.”  (but better to improve at saying no in the first place so one doesn’t get a rep for being unreliable)
