No: Powerful Word Indeed!

New Beginnings with Dhylles

So many of us in life are taught to be kind, nurturing and giving when we were growing up. We were taught about kharma and how it comes back to us and to be careful how we speak or treat others. Although this is very true and something I live by on a dialy basis, there are boundaries and limitations that should not be crossed and saying NO is nothing to feel ashamed about.

As human beings, we have every right to say NO and express how we feel about the word. Saying NO does not make you a mean person or selfish. It means that you are taking a stand in your beliefs. It means you are not allowing others to take advantage of your kindness and mistaking it for weakness. Saying NO means that you are taking accountability for your life and your destiny. NO means you are choosing to keep your goals and dreams on a positive path and not allowing anyone to steer the course. NO means you know you who are and you are proud of being the one person to stand out and be a leader. NO means being able to think outside the box no matter what anyone else thinks or feels.

Don’t be afraid to put you foot down and say NO for what you hold true in your heart and deep down in your core. Liberate yourself in saying NO to what is right and letting others know that you deserve and demand respect!  It is a powerful thing when you let your  voice be heard and  say NO!

I can assist in helping the word NO become a comfortable part of your vocabulary !  Whether it be in your personal or professional life. Ask me how!

Question: Why are we so uncomfortable with saying NO? Why is it hard for us to just say NO?

    I think those of us whose parents had trouble saying , “NO” simply have some trouble doing that which we are not used to. Just say , “no ” or “no thank you.” Practice makes perfect.

    I’ve noticed through life in my own experiences and through watching others that we often say yes in order to avoid confrontation. It may seem like the easy way to just give in and not have to deal with the temper tantrums from saying no to your toddler or deal with how your friend will react if you say you don’t want to go to some fund raiser they are doing or whatever the situation is. We often feel like we are offending someone if we don’t say “YES”. The truth is it wont kill anyone to be offended from time to time. Often times that’s a learning experience for them and not for you. It’s ok to say “No” to do what you know is right for you especially if God is giving you peace about saying no. If others don’t agree with that maybe that’s a case for them to take up to God and let him guide them on why they wanted you to say yes in the first place.

    Thank you for this article and I hope it blesses many people and leads them to revelations in their own lives on when its appropriate to say no.
