Why It’s Ok to Say No

For so many of us the word “NO” is really hard to say but recently I realised it is one of the most important words to say. I woke up this morning prepared to write a post about something else but decided to change the direction of the post to why It’s ok to say No because I think a lot of people like me have this problem but never say anything and I want to share some life lessons that people can relate to on the blog so we can all learn a thing or two.

I admire people that are straight up true to themselves they say no or yes when they have to and move on but people like me find it hard to say No and after doing a lil research on myself I realised the reason I find it hard to say no is because

  • We are peoples pleasers and we think we have to make them happy.
  •  Are afraid of confrontations, if we say no we might fight or there is going to be a conflict.
  • we feel responsible, if I don’t do this for the person who will.
  • we feel guilty, Like this is the most important one for me because I always feel guilty,If I don’t do this for this person I would feel like a terrible person.

There are a lot of different reasons why most of us find it hard to say no but I guess everyone has their own story.

Do not get me wrong,You need to help people that you love, make them happy.But when it is an inconvenience and you know you can’t help a lot then tell the person No in a nice way and it is their choice to understand.

I was going for a business meeting and decided to try nude tones and I love it because I can feel the business casual thing going on in my head. I love that the blazer and bodysuit are different tones but work perfectly together. See how I styled the bodysuit differently HERE

    I love your outfit. It is so well put together, simple and chic.
    And you are right, it’s ok to say NO sometimes especially when it causes you emotional discomfort. And the reasons you highlighted are apt and relatable. The truth is you can’t always please people no matter how much you try, so saying NO (when necessary) absolutely doesn’t change that. Do have a great weekend.

    This post was insightful, as I for example really find it hard to say no, which leads to me ending up in extremely exhausting and stressful situations! I hope we all learn to say no when we absolutely have to!
