Life Lessons: How to Say NO and Mean ItNo. How can such a simple word generate so much overwhelming guilt?
This one little word has the power to turn the best of us into a stuttering mess.
Having the confidence to say NO to begin with is a huge accomplishment for many of us. When we’re finally able to recognize our need for boundaries, we can prevent our calendars from being too over-committed. Why then do we feel like we have to explain our refusal to take on something more?
We do not need to justify our decision to set limits and maintain balance. In doing so, we are just seeking the other person's approval of our refusal. The only person we owe an explanation to is ourselves.So practice saying NO. Period. And then practice walking away. #nomeansno #lifelessons #kurtstips
