How many times have you been at an event or doing some task and you asked yourself, “Why did I agree to this?”
The cost of not being able to say “NO” is huge. It robs us of our time, energy, money, joy and sometimes even our health.
I get it, you’re a really nice person and you like to help people, and that’s great if you are doing it while still taking care of yourself and spending time with the people you love. It’s not great when it comes at a cost.
Many women struggle with saying “No”. Maybe you’re scared that the other person will get angry or be disappointed in you.
In my work as a counselor and coach, I have spent the last seven years helping women learn how to say “No” and set boundaries so that they can do the things they really want to do.
After reading Dr. Gabor Mate’s book When The Body Says No, I decided it was time to learn how to rock my “No” factor and take better care of myself – so my body doesn’t have to.
Want to know my step-by-step plan for learning how to say “No” in a way that is respectful of your loved ones?
