Thought for the Day - The Connection Between Saying No and Self-Respect

Not being able to sayNO is not about being nice to someone else. Saying NO is actually about being nice to ourself most times.

When we say NO to things we do not want to do, things against our wishes, we are actually saying that we love and respect ourselves, our decision over someone else's decision on what we must do.

I love myself. I respect myself. I will not do anything that goes against that. Because only when I love myself, can I truly love others.

Don't feel guilty when you say NO. Don't feel guilty when you stand up for yourself.

Because most times when you say NO to others, its actually a YES to yourself.
