To often I find myself in situations that I could’ve easily avoided, had I learned to say “no”. I too often follow gut instincts and fleshly desires without accessing the consequences of my actions. There are dire consequences for both myself, my family, and those I love around me. (i.e. cheating on Steven) Another way I look at this goal is that I can sometimes be unwillingly submissive, in order to please other people. I find myself talking to men who obviously only want to sleep with me, but I can’t find it in my heart to stand up ofr myself and tell them “no” i dont want to talk to you if all you’re going to talk about is how sexy I am. Thanks, but no thanks. I’m hoping I can ascess situations thouroughyl before jumping into them, and to be more assertive when I’m feeling uncomfortable.
