Say no sometimes

The king of no!

Saying yes all the time? Nope, that’s not how it should be done. It’s annoying and it gets in the way of things you want to do. It’s bad in a sort of way to say no to somebody because naturally we’re meant to help each other out but it’s such a necessary thing. This is the conclusion I’ve come to as somebody who has trouble saying the ‘n’ word.

People look for other people to say yes when it comes to favours, so it’s always a situation where the person asking banks on their target’s thought process being one that leads to them saying yes because they don’t want to seem like a bad person. In reality this makes the person asking the bad person as they are taking advantage of their target and on top of that there comes a point where saying yes stops being yes for a favour and starts being yes for an order.

When you constantly say yes to someone it gets to a point where they’ll ask (tell) you for a favour and expect you to say yes, what’s worse is that they’ll be shocked when you say no as if you didn’t have that option. When people say kindness gets taken for weakness, saying yes definitely applies to that.

Saying no can be good (I’m definitely going to do that more) that way you can get time to do things you want to do. There’s that and then again you might not having trouble saying no, in that case then this post really doesn’t apply to you I guess.
