It’s uncomfortable, right?
In fact, saying no feels like stepping on iron nails.
Unfortunately, I regularly come across situations where I want to say no, but end up saying yes. And that often leads me to feel bad about myself.
For the last couple of days, this sweet woman from a job consultancy was chasing me to attend an interview at her client’s premises. I wanted to say no since the job location was quite far from where I put up. However, owning to my habit, I kept on dragging the thing until she stopped chasing me since I wasn’t picking up her phone.
I felt bad.
Everyday I fail to live up to what I say, I feel bad. Only if I can say No at the first place, I think I can save myself from a lot of these embarrassing situations.
But even when I try, people don’t take my No. They keep on trying until I give up. So, is the problem with the people? Or, with me who gives up?
I was reading a piece online where the writer said that saying No is an art. It must be. And I’m a total failure in this art.
I’m trying hard to get rid of this habit or whatever it is.
