We often feel guilty about saying no.

But at times it is necessary.

Others might take it the wrong way…

But that’s a risk we must take.

We’ve all been told “no” at times.

And sometimes we make a meaning out of it.

Although, without being in another’s head, there’s no way you can know their reasons for saying “no.”

Because we’re offended by a negative response, we vow never to say “no” to others – we don’t want to hurt them. And that’s not workable.

The truth is a negative response doesn’t matter so long as we don’t take it as “rejection.”

“No” often isn’t rejection. Timing is usually the critical missing piece.

Remember – your wellbeing is key. You’ve got to say “no” at times. It’s critical if you want to leave space for the best opportunities too.

So, let yourself say no when you need to.
