We are all born with a capacity and ability to say “No”—if you don’t believe me, ask any 2 year old! Many times people have had early experiences where their No was not respected, and even suppressed or denied.
The more robustly you can claim your No and bring it out into the open air, the more balanced your life can be. Your strong No enables you to have an equally strong Yes, and the wideness between the two of those poles can give you a bigger space to live in!
Be encouraged, relationships benefit from the increased strength of your connection to your No! We often don’t realize that our “No” is helpful to those who really love us, because they then know how to better treat us, and that in turn enhances and deepens the relationship.
You have a right to your “No” and I am available to help you find it, so that you can use it when you need it.
