I've learned to say no without feeling guilty and without always explaining myself. I didn't arrive at this point overnight; it took many years and many experiences. But as time went on, it got easier to set boundaries and enforce them.
Learning to say no is difficult, especially with people that bully, whine and try to manipulate or guilt you into doing something you really don't want to. But standing your ground is not only a way to respect and take care of yourself, but also necessary for your health and well-being.
Are you able to say no without feeling guilty?
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
