It’s okay to say No as it is a complete sentence. If not, it’s definitely something you should keep in mind for your daily life. While you don’t necessarily want to say no all the time, it’s important to know that you CAN when you need to.

It can be easy to fall into the trap of people pleasing your way through life, and never setting healthy boundaries for yourself. This is an understandable struggle you want to make the people around you happy and not let them down! However, you must consider your own life and feelings sometimes. Taking stock of your mental, emotional, and physical health is part of how you can decide when it’s okay to say no. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to help you know when you need to take a step back from being everything to everyone:

What else is on my plate? If you simply have too much to do, and you’re overwhelmed. Say no.

Do I WANT to do this? It’s important to realize that you don’t have to have an elaborate reason to say no. Not wanting to is enough.

Am I in the right mindset for this? Sometimes what is happening in our own life can make certain things just too much to do. For example, planning a birthday party might not be a great project to take on right after a death in the family.

Does this person consistently take advantage of me? It’s an unfortunate fact that there are lots of people that seek out people to manipulate and take advantage of. You can find these people everywhere, so always stay vigilant, and make sure they aren’t doing it to you. TRUE friends and HEALTHY family will have relationships with you that are built on give AND take.

Have I had any me time lately? Self-care is vital to a happy and healthy life. If you’re constantly going and going and doing things for everyone else you’re neglecting yourself. When this happens, burnout, stress, anxiety, and more can creep in and create lots of other issues in your life. Take and make time to take care of YOU.

I hope this has helped you to take a look at your habits of how much you say no to people when you should. It’s okay to stand up for yourself and say no when something just isn’t a good fit for you at the time.
