For years I was a person who aimed to please people’s lives…I wanted to make everyone happy, even if it meant sacrificing my own happiness. Call me a people pleaser if you will…
But today, after an uncomfortable situation at work I found myself starting to steam…my cheeks flushed, and I felt the anxiety creeping in with it’s quiet demeanor. Darn it…here we go again. WAIT.
I stopped, drafted an email explaining my concerns with what I was asked to do, and set it aside.
I waited, nearly 10 minutes and came back to it to reread what I had wrote.
I hit send…to the powers that be and then…
I waited again for a response…
I got confirmation that I was in the right, and that I didn’t need to do the task I was originally asked to perform as it was out of my scope.
I smiled. I stood up for myself. I said no.
This was a welcomed milestone in my moving forward mantra, and I am still smiling.
Do you have a problem saying no? If so, how have you dealt with it?
