Queen of Your Own Life

We Are Not Dishonest Women

She was a woman of her word is an original Queenisms quote from Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff. All rights reserved.

She had become a woman of her word: Yes meant yes and no definitely meant no. – Queenisms™

When we say yes to everyone, we are saying no to ourselves. Leaving ourselves over committed, under supported and thoroughly depleted makes it certain that we’ll be angry or put off by those who ask something more of us. If we cannot say no, we’ll build up resentment for the person who asked. It is not their fault that no does not come easily to us. They are not mind readers. They believed us when we said yes. So saying yes when we mean no is dishonest. We are not dishonest women. We say no when we cannot joyfully, happily and with love in our hearts deliver on the promise of yes. We say no and free the asker to find someone else. Clear. Now go be honest.
