It’s often something we don’t think about, but saying no can be hard. And, when we do work up the courage to say no, many times we feel the need to make up an excuse, or even worse, a lie, to get out of what’s being asked of us.
Guess what, though?! There is an alternate way.
Saying no doesn’t have to feel heavy and be filled with the energy of dread and hesitation. It can be as simple as saying no or just speaking from your truth.
What does this look like? It’s simply speaking from your heart. Depending on the situation, it can look like, “This doesn’t feel right for me.” or “I’m sorry, but I’m not going to be able to make it.”
Yes it can be that easy.
