Saying No Gets Easier with Practice

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest so you can be recharged for the week.

Have you ever said yes when you really wanted or meant to say no? Why is that? Was it out of guilt? Commitment? Loyalty? Those are all great words but if your insides don’t match your outsides then there is sure to be conflict.

I used to be one of these people and no one ever saw my conflict unless you were very close to me. And by very close I mean Joel and maybe one other friend.

As I started to read books and heal from past trauma I learned that is was okay to say no. In fact it was very therapeutic to not do something that I felt shoved in to. Then I could truly bring energy, joy, and enthusiasm to the role. If I had not given a true answer then after the façade wore off then my no would eventually rise to the surface.

So how do you say no without feeling guilty? I had to practice. So, of course, I seemed to be given endless opportunities to say no. Now sometimes I failed and said yes and other times it would be a maybe. But as time marched on I began to learn how to say that two letter word…no…more easily.
