I have to be true to me so that I don’t have to deal with negativity, anxiety and regret in the aftermath of a situation I should have said “No” to.
It’s all in the way you decline; if I do it respectfully and the other person doesn’t get it, it’s ok. I’m over trying to explain myself to people. If you can’t see my heart or you’re not with it, so be it. In the end, my peace of mind is is more important than “making nice” with folks for the sake of what they might think of me.
Who (or what) do you need to say to in your life?
