What No Means

11/21/2013


NO is such a negative word, right?
For me, not really.

Saying YES can instantly make you agreeable, BUT you cannot say yes to everything.
Sometimes, people tend to agree or say yes because they don't want to hurt other people's feelings.
We don't want to let people down so we end up doing things we really don't like.
I am guilty of this, sometimes. I bet, you are guilty too?

But you CAN say no.
NO to people who aren't right for you.
NO to things you don't want to do.
Have the courage to be free from doing things you resent.


Sometimes I say NO because . . .

I am busy.
I feel lazy.
I don't trust you.
I am not interested.
I think it is a waste of time.
I have work to finish.
I think it is nonsense.
It is simply not important.
It is not acceptable.
I will not tolerate things like that.
I am afraid of moving this forward.
I am no longer the person you think I am.
I am not the type of person who does things like that.
I don't want to open my door to that kind of possibility.
Thinking about it will only make me think about things I don't what to think about.

But.. .

It does NOT mean that I don't see the world the way you do. We are just completely different people.
It does NOT mean that I didn't understand what you've said. Really, I did. But I just don't like it.
It does NOT mean that I hate you. I just said No.

If you know your priorities and you really know what you want, it won't be so hard to say NO and weed out unnecessary things in your life. By doing that, you'll be more open to saying YES to people and things that really matter to you.

How about you? Do you find it hard to say NO?
