How many times have you ever dragged yourself out of the house or stopped by somewhere on the way home and you really didn’t feel like it? You probably did it because you told someone that you would be there at a certain time, and you don’t want to break your promise. Trust me. I’ve been there, and continue to struggle with how I manage my time and my commitments.
Oftentimes we say “yes” even when we want to say “no” because we feel obligated or that we just don’t want to hurt the other person’s feelings. However, it is important to remember that when we say “yes” to something we inevitably say “no” to something else. For example, if we agree to stop by an event when you really just want to stay home and relax or do something else, then we just said “no” to ourselves.
It’s so easy to get lost in what is going on around us, and our desire to always be seen that it becomes easy to forget our own needs. Here are three reasons why it you should say no and be totally unapologetic about it.
It’s important to say “no,” however we need to think before we commit up front to avoid exhaustion, which leads to last minute cancellations. This seems super obvious, but it is also very difficult. It’s easier to say no to ourselves and yes to other people. However, if we learn how to say no to others we can avoid overextending ourselves and love ourselves enough to make time for our needs and executing the vision for our lives.
