It’s okay to say no, inspired by my best friend, Chelsea, as she can never say no! (I actually wrote this blog ages ago… but she still hasn’t learnt her lesson!)
This can be something we all struggle with though, maybe not all the time but I bet there is at lease one person you just can’t say no too, or maybe you just can’t say no to anyone, the word just does not exist to you.
But why can’t you say no? What makes you think that you have to do something you don’t want to do just to make someone else happy? YOU DON’T! If you don’t want to do something, YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO IT! 
It really is that simple…
Why should you spend your time doing you’re not enjoying? Life is too short for that BS. If you don’t want to do it just because it’s bad timing, guess what… you can rearrange!
Or maybe it’s just something you really won’t enjoy, so be honest & tell them! You can always change your plans & do something you’ll both enjoy. 
Being able to say no to people is so so so important! If your doing something just to make someone else happy & not because you want to or you’re enjoying it.
The you are not being the best version of yourself whilst spending time with that person, we all want to be the best version of ourselves, especially when we are spending time with others right?
So next time someone invites you to do something & you really don’t fancy it, say no, rearrange, or plan to do something different! It’s that easy!!!
Enjoy life whilst you still can, it soon passes by, so don’t be scared of trying new things, that is not a good enough excuse to say no in my book!

  1. They say the most selfless people are the most selfish. There’s sometimes a need to say ‘yes’ to validate our self-worth, to feel loved. It’s definitely a tricky balance and a life challenge to work on.

    Good work, keep them coming
