I know, this post sounds a bit contradictory but I promise that it’s true. I’m currently on a 21 day meditation journey with The Mentors Channel and one of the sessions was on personal boundaries. The affirmation that we meditated on was this: “As I lovingly set boundaries in my life, I celebrate the freedom to give from the deepest part of my soul.”
Have you ever found yourself saying yes to something because you thought you should? Or you felt bad saying no, so you plastered a smile on your face and said “I’d love to”? Then the day comes and all you do is complain about how you don’t want to go. Or you end up bailing at the last minute because your fears or resentments take over. Talk about a bad time for everyone! All you’ve done is create an abundance of negativity in your life.
Imagine the freedom you would gain by saying no when you mean no. You would no longer feel resentful, taken advantage of, or like you’re wasting your time on something you never really wanted to do in the first place. Even if you think you’re doing the right thing, trust me, people know when your heart’s not in it, and you’re not really giving it 100%. Why not let someone else step up who genuinely wants to be there? Of course exceptions to the rule always apply, so listen to your intuition and know when to say no.
