Saying Yes, Saying No
How do we decide what to say yes to and what to say no to?
I am convinced that one of the main reasons our lives get out of balance is because we have a hard time saying no. It just comes natural for us to be multi-taskers and people-pleasers. I don’t think I know any woman who doesn’t want to be there for everyone she knows whether at work, church, or friends. I’m right there with her. I don’t want to disappoint anybody, and for some reason, I feel like I have to be it all and do it all.
But the truth is, I can’t. So, I’m learning to say no to a lot of requests for my time. That way I’ll have the energy and emotion I need to give to those closest to me. I know I’ll disappoint someone but I won’t be as likely to disappoint those I love most, which includes God and my family.
