JUST SAY ‘NO!’ Part II
By Judy Thomas
Sometimes the answer is to start saying ‘No!’ and making it stick. This decision is not without a price to be sure. It may mean cutting ties with toxic people that we have become accustomed to having in our lives, or giving up the security that comes with predictable employment. Only you can decide when the price is worth ending the pain.
While reclaiming the power of 'No' is not the only way to counter the pain in our life, it is the most basic. Take a look at your life and identify the areas that seem to be the source of your most persistent pain, ask yourself some pointed questions and be ready to accept what may be some hard truths. Now you are ready to start making some decisions about making changes.
