Queen of Your Own Life

She loved the way she said no

She almost never said no, because she wanted to be liked. But when she finally did, she found she liked herself much better. - Queenisms™

If you’ve been following our blogs and posts for awhile, you know that we believe the word no is an essential part of living an honest life. We think saying yes to everyone means saying no to yourself. We also think saying no must be done in a timely fashion and in an honest way. When we cannot, or do not want to, to agree to something, saying no frees the asker to find someone who can do what they need or want. When we say “maybe” or “if” or even “yes” and then rescind at a later date, we’ve been dishonest and we’ve set the stage for hurt feelings or even anger. But a clear cut “no” frees us from the anxiety of planning a way out of something we did not want to do right from the get-go.  See our point? If you’ve been a serial yes-sayer, learning to say no can be uncomfortable. But we assure you, it’s a practice worthy of a Queen.

  1. Saying no can be hard but I agree it’s worth it. You make a great point about making things more difficult by saying yes and then having to cancel or reschedule. This may be a life long learning process for me…. But I’ll keep trying!
