Just Say “No.”
Having boundaries as women is very important. I know we are here to serve a lot and nourish people and give a lot but if we are empty there is nothing to give. It’s important for you to recognize when you are overwhelmed with commitments and exercise your right to say no.
When we have made ourselves available to anyone and everyone that asks, we give and give and give and don’t make the time for ourselves to fill back up. Eventually our well nears the end of its reserves. When that happens, our attitude turns negative and even more draining on us. We become impatient with the kids and don’t have the energy to have sex with our man.
Boundaries are very important. When your phone rings and they caller tells you how great of a job you did previously and they simply can’t manage the upcoming charity event without your help, hear me now when I tell you it’s okay to say no.
Thank them for the offer and kind words but let them know you are fully committed right now but to please keep you in mind for next time. You don’t have to be everything for every person.
You can say no, it’s ok. You can say yes to yourself.>
