100 Days of Writing – Day Five

Saying No…

How easy is it for you to say no?

Not very. For much of my life, I have been a people-pleaser and have ended up saying “yes” to what other people have requested before thinking it through. And then some time later, I’ve regretted agreeing to do something and have gotten resentments with myself and the person I’ve said “yes” to.

Through these experiences, I have learned it’s perfectly okay to say “no” or even “I’ll have to think on that and get back to you.” It has kept me from committing to things that I really don’t want to do and later regretting it. It also gives me a chance to reflect on what’s best for me and ultimately, all involved.
