I hate saying no sometimes. I really don’t like that feeling of either disappointing someone’s hopes or else causing consternation. But I do see the importance of knowing when to say no. I don’t like the idea of my being a pushover. No seems to mark an important boundary that doesn’t offend integrity. It isn’t good to be a complete yes person, always agreeing and allowing for things you may not 100% be happy with. I also have to be able to say no to myself, when negative thoughts arise that are most of the time, untrue and even ludicrous.
