Why is No such an hard word to say
I have all my life struggled to say the word no to people and if i do i feel so bad and hate my self for saying no.
I find it so hard to say no to my ex like her asking me to have the kids when she is supose to have them and just say yes even though i had plans or an appointment and just change them or cancel them.
It is really hard to say no to the kids i give them everything they ask for.I feel like a bad parent at times but feel worst if I do say no as my son starts crying and it breaks my heart and makes me feel so bad.
Why is this one little word so hard to say?
Hi - In trying to become a little more assertive myself, I started saying "Ok, no worries, I will have a think about it and get back to you soon.". Its been a good strategy as it gives me the space to think about if I want to help with a persons request, if I can, and if I in fact should be helping anyway. It can be uncomfortable at first and takes practice 🙂
