It’s okay to say no, there are many reasons why we should say no sometimes, and there are just as many reasons why we don’t – and suffer for not doing. Please try to Understand that “no” isn’t cruel. By itself, saying no isn’t rude, mean, or uncaring.
When saying No, Excuse yourself plainly. The most basic way of saying no without ruining anyone else’s day is to clearly and plainly say “no,” followed by a brief, reason why you said no. Honestly there’s no need to lie or make up an excuse if you don’t feel yours is good enough – remember, everyone has felt the same way you do when expressing yourself to say no. If you just don’t feel like granting a request, that’s all the excuse you need. No specific, concrete, or logical reason is required.
Handle problem requests with bluntness. Saying “No”Be firm, not defensive, be polite. This gives the signal that you are sympathetic, but will not easily change your mind if pressured.
Always Be clear. If you decide to tell the person you’ll get back to them, be matter-of-fact and not too promising. If you lead people to believe you’ll likely say “yes” later, they’ll be more disappointed with a later “no.
Saying No, No excuses are necessary. If asked for an explanation, remember that you really don’t owe anyone one. “It doesn’t fit with my schedule,” is perfectly acceptable, Or If you don’t want to do it, don’t do it. And if your friends, Family, etc, force you to do things you are not comfortable with, question your friendship, situation, etc.
Be Free. Set boundaries. Love yourself.
