No, Nope, Nah
Don’t Live Your life To Please Anyone Else. Don’t Live In Fear Of Getting Judged.
Most of the time deep inside we feel to say “NO” to something but due to any certain or uncertain reason we reply with a “YES”. Saying NO doesn’t mean you are a bad person but we can’t say because of an unseen fear.
What are the reasons behind it ? Why is it so difficult to say the word “NO” ? It’s just a two letter word, right?
Fear of getting Rejected !!!
Fear of feeling guilty !!!
Fear of loosing a relationship !!!
Whatever the reason is , just give it a thought why is it necessary to say YES to everything ???
In my life I have faced many awful situations just because I couldn’t say NO to something. I am also one of them who doesn’t like to hurt anyone’s feelings & up to some extent it’s good but when you neglect your own voice and self esteem to please everyone then you are doing injustice with yourself.
Saying NO is an art . Not all people can do it, but everyone can give it a try. Because it’s better to say NO now, than be spiteful later.
Have you ever faced any situation when you really didn’t want to do something but said YES forcefully and regretted later ? Have you thought if you have said NO at first point for so and so thing , then things could be different right now ?
Days are gone when we were bounded with restrictions and couldn’t present our own view . We can say NO when we feel so. But the question is how to say NO ? What are the things I can say NO to?
