Soooo many physical and mental health issues could’ve been avoided if “No” was said more often.
You don’t have to say “no” in a rude way. I say “Today I have to…” and whips, I can do whatever that is. Sure, people will stop reaching out. Personally, I feel okay with that. It’s calculated. That might be tough for some.
I find myself less and less in situations where I’m forced to do something I don’t want to do. I’ve stopped attracting it. Somehow people know where I stand. But when I do say yes, I can be 100 percent present with them, and we will share high quality time.
