Learning how to say no with confidence can take practice. It’s important to feel confident when saying no, otherwise we will agree to things we are not comfortable with or truly desire doing.
Saying no can feel difficult because it can be tied to our own expectations or other’s expectations. This can lead to guilt being part of the equation. When we don’t say no to think we want to say no to, we end up falling short and facing what we didn’t want to face to begin with.
Learning to say no helps strengthen our ability to manage our time better and stay motivated for the things we really want to invest in.
If we say yes to situations we don’t want to be in, we are allowing others to influence our decision making, which weakens our desire and joy in the process. Have your ever said yes to something, and then immediately regret it? When we are dealing with this, we begin to develop bitterness and resentment against the people involved. This hurts our relationships and causes ourselves stress of our own making.
