The Art Of Saying NO

No Means No

Hello World

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

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything 😊 I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible, even after the loss of a child, which to me is the most devastating life event ever... I know for I have and am prevailing each and every day. It isn't easy and there are days where I feel I cannot go on yet always know that You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀
