Saying “no” when you want to say “no” is one of the most honest and kindest things you can do for another person.
Because saying “yes” when you want to say “no” is dishonest. And being dishonest isn’t kind.
When you say “yes” when you really don’t want to, you’re not going to show up in the same way as if you really wanted to say “yes.”
You’re not going to be all in on whatever-it-is that you said “yes” to.
You’re going to feel resentment.
You’re going to feel regret.
You’re not going to feel any of the feelings you need to feel in order to show up right.
So say “no” when you want to say “no.”
You’ll show up in your truth, and you’ll have your own back.
