Mental Health Awareness 💚

It’s ok to say NO to people, including your friends, toxic family members, co-workers, or relationships!

Why is it difficult to say No?

•We are people pleasers. I want them to be happy. I want to be the one to make them happy.

•We are afraid of confrontation. If I say no there is going to be conflict.

•We feel guilty. If I don’t agree to do this thing for this person I love I’m a terrible person.

•There could be ramifications. My boss asked me to do this extra work for them when I have a full plate already and John over there has nothing but time. I can’t say no because it will look like I’m not part of the team or doing my job well.

•Fear of rejection. If I don’t do this for them, they just may not like me anymore.

•Feeling of responsibility. If I don’t do this, who will?

Look your mental health is your first priority, people will be ok, bosses will be ok, family/friends will be ok if you just say NO.

Remember you owe no explanation to anybody period…..🤷‍♀️🏽

Need a swift kick in the butt to teach you how to set boundaries and learn how to say NO without feeling guiltily…let’s chat 💭
