The resolution was to say no whenever it was required instead of saying he’s to everything and being bossed upon.
Well, difficult it is, isn’t it? How do I tell no to a co-worker, who may return the favour tomorrow, although i would be delaying my lunch and spoiling my health. How do i tell no to the non sense of a cousin when she loves me as much as I do although he or she maybe crossing the line I have drawn.
But this year, I have decided, no matter how difficult, I am going to say No to things and non sense of people instead of being bossed upon. Its always safe a d less heart breaking to say no initially than saying it after all the limits have been crossed.
I am an adult yet sometimes have to live the life dictated by someone younger to me or elder or peer. My mistake completely, for I have ways been the elder, the elder sister the elder daughter,have always been expected to adjust with the non sense and stupidity of the younger ones, although you k ow sometimes the younger ones are wrong. But I no longer want to, or accept to do it. I want a life in my terms, not dictated and shared.
Do you have some thoughts on how I could say No and handle such situations.
