“Isn’t it funny that one of the most important words to say is also one of the hardest? One simple word: no. Yet, to say it brings up a flood of feelings—guilt, defensiveness, a fear of offending. Sometimes the feelings flash by so quickly we don’t even notice what they are. We just know that we don’t want to say that one little word. Yet, the ability to say ‘no,’ to set boundaries and build a structure that works for us, is one of the most important tools we can add to our arsenals to successfully create our best lives.”
