What do you mean? Oooh
When you nod your head yes
But you wanna say no
What do you mean? Heeey
I never thought I would quote Justin Bieber but there’s a first for everything!
I know a lot of people who have trouble spitting out the ‘N’ word. I believe many of us struggle with this because we’re people pleasers. We want to make sure everyone else is happy – even at our own expense. There is also a lot of guilt that comes up for many of us when we say no.
It’s important to learn how to stand your ground, because saying yes all the time when you wanna say no can cause you a lot of unnecessary stress! It also builds a lot of resentment towards other people when it’s really an internal issue you need to work on yourself. You shouldn’t blame other people for making you feel like you should say yes – that decision is fully on you and you need to work through why it’s so difficult for you to be honest about what you really want.
Being truthful and saying no actually shows a lot of confidence, and people will respect you more for staying true to who you are and what you want. People will likely be even more drawn to you because confidence is an attractive quality to have.
In this weeks video I give you some new perspectives to think about that will help you feel good about saying no! Check it out 🙂
How to Say NO!:
To truly understand your aversion to saying no, you have to ask yourself what you’re truly afraid of in the situation. What do you worry will happen if you don’t say yes?
If you struggle with feeling guilt around saying no remind yourself that you’re not doing anything wrong by saying no. Guilt is a feeling you have when you feel you’ve done something wrong. Saying no is not a moral issue so why should you feel guilty?
