In life, there are many situations that may bring you to say the word no, but you end up saying yes. A lot of them are in relationships, money, lifestyle, etc.
Knowing when to say no is much necessary. A lot of people do not say it too often and end up doing things they don’t really want to do. Or get too involved in life altering commitments. The following are some suggestions or things to learn and questions that you may ask yourself the next time something comes up.
Learn the meaning of want and need.
“Need” is a basic living essential like, if you don’t have it, you could die. Life food and water.
“Want” is something that you feel you need, or you really desire, but not having it doesn’t mean you die. Like the Luis Boutin heals.
Do I need this or do I want it?
Then learning to be truthful to yourself and honoring what you really need vs. what you want. At the end of the day, what you get or do not get falls on you. You will live with the choices you make. Yes people!!! What our parents told us growing up (well, mines always did) about making correct decision does follow us. And if you are reading this, then you will say… awe man! That old lady was right! LOL Mommy I love you and you are not old yet!
Nevertheless, pick, choose and learn what works for you.
If you’re dating someone, make sure you get what you need out of it, and make sure you give what you want to give to it. Learn that saying no will have some response and results from both sides. After all isn’t that a big part of a relationship…communication.
In friendships, learn to say no or yes. Allow your friends to be a part of your life, but don’t allow them to run it. Running your life is your job. Saying no is ok. And so is yes, as long as you are true to you.
In money!!!!!!!!! Defiantly learn how to say no. And learn what you want and what you need. And remember to save for a rainy day…lol.
Ok people, with that I’m off to make my dinner and not eat pasta and make some salmon because I don’t want or need the calories of pasta, but I do want and need healthy food. Just threw this in here to mess with you.
I hope you live and learn everyday, and learn to know what your want and need in life.
Live life, love, and be!
