The key to saying no is Permission.
If at any time I am having trouble saying no, here is what I do:
- Give myself permission to want what I want.
- Give myself permission to not look for a reason why.
- Give myself permission to be wrong. (Are the planets likely to grind to orbital halt really?)
- Give the other person the right to hate me. (By giving them the right to feel how they feel, I get to do the same)
