NO! NO! NO!
Have you ever tried to look in someone’s eye and say no?
Did you enjoy it?
Do you make a habit of saying NO?
Do you find yourself increasingly alarmed by the number of women who do not have the choice to say NO?
If you do then you are among few of the women world over who can and get away with it too.Everywhere whenever something is suggested to a women, it is expected that she will say yes or OK and agree to whatever preposterous or noble idea has been put forth in front of her.
Some of us who do manage the courage to say no are then subjected to ridicule, anger, abuse and even boycott ! Very few of us actually have the choice and fewer even have the guts to say no; no matter what the question.
I for one make it a habit of saying NO first and thinking of consequences later. That is equally bad but it has become a habit with me because I see everywhere people have a need of steamrolling women into agreeing to anything.(Maybe it is the I in Inderpreet.)
I do say no to myself too sometimes; just so I don’t forget the guts to say no.
I feel whenever we say no to others we say ‘Yes’ to ourselves, our decisions and our own plans. Look into a mirror and practice saying NO for yourself.
Remember that NO is a YES as it let’s you be your own boss. You have a freedom of choice; utilize it. Saying NO means that you have the choice of saying YES to something that is important for you.
From the color of your dress or the route you take to office or the partner you choose; even how you choose all of the above, remember you can say NO.
Do you get struck with a YES because you want to please your loved ones? (They will understand your No if they really love you.)
Do you say NO as often as you would like to?
Do you agree a NO is a YES for yourself?
