Day 13: How hard is it for you to say “no”?

Things to know about life: “No” is a complete sentence. It does not require justification or explanation. ~Unknown

Saying “no” can be a hard concept for me at times.

As small as the word “no” is, it can have one of the biggest meanings to it. It can mean something as small as no more ice cream tonight to something as big as no I do not love you anymore.

The word “no” to me can be scary at times because I am very selfless and sometimes to be selfish and take time just for myself I have to say “no” to some things people ask of me. I have become more accustomed to the word “no” this past year though. I realized this past year that sometimes you need a mental break and have to say “no” and be alone with yourself. Also, this year I have learned to say “no” to people that I do not want to keep in my life and some that I do not want to come in at all.

Sometimes saying “no” can feel like the end of the world, but once it is out the world can become so much better because of the reason you said it.

I am not the type of person to say “no” about just anything, but when I do it is usually about something serious.

Even though the word “no” can be one of the hardest to give and also to receive it can be one of the most helpful. Saying “no” can help you to make steps in growing in life and it can help you to rid your life of people who have no room in your life.

Saying “no” can be hard for anyone, myself included, but it is one of the most effective words and learning to be less afraid of it can help out a lot.
