The Business of Boundaries: How to Protect your Energy and Needs with Everyone in your Life EP224
You have to be willing to say this sentence in order to get exactly what you want. It’s so simple, yet one of the hardest things to put into practice. “No.” Being able to say, “no,” without preparing an excuse or giving some explanation, without apologizing for it….was pure agony for me. Because people sensed this about me my entire life, I got used, walked all over, and taken for granted in both business and my personal life. It wasn’t until I literally almost died from people pleasing, over-extending my self, and tending to everyone needs above my own, that I was willing to change my operating system. I believed that if I told someone I wanted something different than what they wanted, or something they wouldn’t approve of, that they would hate me, leave me, or ridicule me. This scared me to the point where I was willing to suffer and abandon my own needs and desires. I’m sharing this vulnerable truth about me; because I want you to hear what I wish someone had taught me from birth. If you aren’t happy in certain areas of your life (or any areas), ask yourself what are you saying “yes” to when you really mean “no?” We have to be willing to say “no” to the people, places, and things that are no longer working for us, in order to allow room for the people, places, and things we desire.
