Have you ever been in a situation where an acquaintance asks you for a favor/help and you find yourself battling the huge task of saying NO??
I think most of us have been in such situations N no of times and we end up doing things for XYZ when deep down we don’t have the guts to say NO.
Have you ever wondered why it’s so difficult to excuse ourselves from things we don’t want to do? What stops us?? Are we scared of letting people down or does it hurt our ego.
Till a few years ago I found it extremely tough to put on a straight face and politely say “plz don’t mind but I don’t think I can do it”. I realized I am doing something to keep somebody happy but in the process I am not being myself. I would do anything to keep somebody happy but would you do it always even if you don’t want to?
Over the years I have learnt saying NO is not a crime at all. We just need to learn the art of saying it in a nice sugar coated way sprinkled with some chocolate chips on the top 🙂
Never do something just because you want to see or satisfy another person or a situation. Do something when you want to do it whole heartedly. Learn to say NO in some situations where you need to be firm. Don’t kill yourself with guilt later 🙂
