I saw a quote once saying ‘No is a complete sentence’ and ever since then I’d like to believe it is.
This one word if correctly used can make you feel relieved, empowered, unbothered, less stressed, and taken care of, and it increases your mental strength which is important.
Learn the art of saying “NO”. Don’t lie. Don’t make excuses. Don’t over explain yourself. Just simply Declinehttp://www.livehappy.com
Learning how to say no is so freeing, it was my hardest word to use. Everybody knows the word. But, when we most want to say it we don’t.
Not even for ourselves though, which is the funny part. We hesitate to say no because more than likely we are thinking of the other person. I am here to tell you, it is okay to say no! Stop overthinking it, say it and stick by it.
In other words do not feel selfish because you have been working all week and you only have two days off and your friend is asking you to go out when all you want to do is walk around your place half naked in a big t shirt doing nothing.
Take care of yourself
Sometimes your friends aren’t going to understand but if they care about you, they’ll let you care about you
Though sometimes it’s not even about ‘me time’ or friends, sometimes it’s about grinding and hustling to get what you want. For example the closer you get to your dream, the more you dig in and grind to accomplish the goals you set out for yourself, the more you end up having to say NO
“NO I can’t lend you the money.”
“NO I don’t want a man.”
“NO I don’t want to collaborate.”
“NO I’m not doing it your way.”
“NO I can’t go out tonight.”
For instance how many times have we thought these exact same words and didn’t say them. Ending up entertaining, and giving energy towards something you did not want to do or give in the first place.
In conclusion. Let no free year this year and for many years to come
Saying no can be the ultimate self-careClaudia Black
