It’s hard to say “NO”. Yes, I get that. It’s even harder to say “No” if you don’t know why you find it hard to say “No” in the first place. Our motives drive us, compel us, even steer us in the wrong direction sometimes. Before you can change that “Yes” to a “No”, you need to understand why you are having a hard time saying “No”.
Can you imagine how different your life would look if you could utter that short, two letter, seemingly dirty word “No”? Let me paint a picture for you. Your life might resemble one that you wake up each morning anxious to live, one that energizes you rather than suffocates you to death, one that fills you with a sense of purpose rather than a sense of utter confusion and chaos, one that is the very life you specifically were created to live – the simplelife.
Simplelife – Living so effortlessly in sync with your unique design that it becomes impossible to detect any division between who you are, what you do and who you were created to be.– Christy
Oh girl, soak in that picture. It can be your life. Make it so, sister, make it so!
A Chronic YES condition is one that most women face. Here are some reasons why we have a hard time saying NO. I call these these Symptoms of a Chronic YES condition.
- Fear of Conflict
- People Pleaser
- Feeling of Obligation
- Need for Affirmation
- Fear of Missing Out (FOMO)
Which do you struggle with most? Let me encourage you by letting you in on a secret. All these symptoms can be cured. These are only symptoms and not the cause of your Chronic YES condition. Once you cure the cause, the symptoms will begin to disappear, and you will be empowered to say NO and feel good about it. I know it sounds impossible. But I know you can do this! Once you learn the real reason you can’t say no, you’ll be on your way to saying NO and feeling good about it.
