Hello to you all. I hope you all had an amazing day and are ready for an exciting tomorrow. Today, I would like to talk about an important matter that causes a major problem for a lot of us.
Many of us don’t know how to say no to someone. If someone asks us for something we tend to set our priorities aside and put his or her priorities forward. And, sometimes we even do things out of the way which we repent doing later. This can easily become a habit of sorts. As time passes, we have learnt to always think of others before ourselves. This can lead to unhappiness.
We are often bothered what he or she might think if we refuse. But, we forget that it does not matter what they think. Instead, it lets the other person take advantage of you. If you want to say no, then don’t think twice and say it. It might feel awkward for some time but it gets okay after a few times.
Now, I am not saying that we should refuse each and everything that someone asks for. We all have a few important people for whom we can do anything anytime. That gives us pleasure and it is a totally different scenario. That is out of love for them.
Knowingly or unknowingly, we all have a particular schedule which we usually follow and that keeps us disciplined in our lives to get things done. So, when we adjust things for others, we are hindering with our schedule. Our own priority task which should’ve been completed at that particular time span gets delayed and soon piles up. And then that undone task bothers us for days and sometimes weeks.
So, my point is that we should first care about ourselves and our priorities. We should learn to put ourselves first so that no one can take us for granted. So, for today and the days coming forward, learn to say no. Cheers.
