Do you feel free enough to say no everytime you really don’t feel like saying yes? Because you should. Don’t be afraid of setting your boundaries. Stay true to yourself. Don’t be afraid of being too harsh. You should not judge yourself for rejecting things and people and opportunities you really don’t want to get into. You are in your right to say no.
Don’t be afraid of what other people might think. That’s not what’s most important. The most important thing is that you are and stay true to yourself, because that’s what’s most valuable to you and also what people will most value IN you. When you say yes and still do things with lacking enthusiasm or really hating that thing you do, people can feel that energy. They can sense it. It’s even worse if you do something even though you don’t want to, because you will disrespect yourself, but also the people involved will feel your energy, of doing something against your will, and they will also lose their respect towards you.
Besides it won’t be comfortable for them as well to know that you’ve said yes, but don’t seem to be willing to do it. So respect yourself enough to say no. It shouldn’t matter to you what someone else will be thinking or feeling, that’s something they should deal with for themselves. That’s their challenge. You are not responsible for keeping everyone satisfied. That’s not your job. Your job is to do what makes you happy and to be responsible for delivering the work required for the things you WANT in your life.
