Why You Should Learn To Say No!

 Learn to say no
Don’t get it wrong ✋ you can be a good person and still say no. 🤷‍♂️ Do you wish you could put your foot down sometimes and say no?

Learning to say no can earn you respect from yourself as well those around you.

Interestingly, the ability to say “no” is closely linked to self-confidence. People with low self-confidence and self-esteem often feel nervous about antagonizing others and tend to rate others’ needs more highly than their own.

Learn to say “no”:

✔️Keep your response simple.
If you want to say “no,” be firm and direct. Use phrases such as “Thanks for coming to me but I’m afraid it’s not convenient right now” or “I’m sorry but I can’t help you.” Try to be strong in your body language and don’t over-apologize. Remember, you’re not asking permission to say “no.” ✔️Consider a compromise.
Only do so if you want to agree with the request, but have limited time or ability to do so. Suggest ways forward to suit both of you. Avoid compromising if you really want or need to say “no.”

✔️Separate refusal from rejection.
Remember you’re turning down a request, not a person. People usually will understand that it is your right to say “no,” just as it is their right to ask the favor.
