Why is it so hard to say no without guilt or an explanation to why we are saying no? We tend to feel bad or guilty or get a guilt trip put on us when we do say no.
There isn’t any other definition for it, that I know of, no simply means no. It doesn’t mean maybe, it doesn’t mean I’ll think about it, it doesn’t mean later, next week or next year and definitely doesn’t mean yes… Simply put no means NO.
We make excuses, we have lied, we’ve said yes when we really didn’t want to yet we did anyway and felt like crap afterwards or held a grudge, blaming it on whatever we should have said no to in the beginning instead of blaming ourselves for not saying no in the first place.
We don’t owe anyone a reason or an explanation when we do say no and most will totally take saying no as something mean, or that we don’t care or take it totally personal and turn a simple no into a negative.
Saying yes when we truly mean no is toxic for both involved and toxic for any type of relationship. When we say yes when we really mean no, we’re not only lying to the other involved, we are also lying to ourself too…
Don’t allow anyone to put a guilt trip on you for saying no… The more you learn to say it, the more others will respect it and will know that when you do say yes, it’s real and meaningful… You don’t have to be mean… All you have to do is politely and simply decline 😊
Learning how to master saying no without guilt or explanations is an art… Learn it and learn it well, for there’s only one definition for the word NO and that is NO
