Learning to say NO but...
Monday, June 18, 2012
I do feel overwhelmed at times as I try to do so many things and be all things to all people. I am looking at it now that it is ok to say No.
Is it selfishness? No it's self preservation. There is a limit to my time and energy.
I was asked to help serve on a charity sale. I found myself saying Sorry NO. but I will contribute towards it
Asked would I join a new team on Sparks. I answered sorry I cant, but I am happy to be her friend and wished her team good luck.
Again, it was sorry NO I cant be a team leader at this time, BUT I do try to be a good team member
Once the NO has been said firmly, with an added BUT.... It is accepted with no hard feelings and I don't feel as bad about refusing.
Can you say No? Irene
