NO – I will not compromise my integrity
NO – I will not take that extra carb i do not need
NO – I will not give up
NO – I will not listen to advice I didn’t ask for or wouldn’t pay for
NO – I will stay with love and discount my reactions
NO – I will not take more than I give
NO – I will not make your stress my stress
NO – I will not react – I will evolve
NO – I value time and won’t waste it
NO – I will say it to my dog, cat and children… it’s an important impasse
I remember my dad saying NO. The stricter he was the more I said YES. He said no to fancy clothes, so I stole money and hid them from his view. It may have been wiser for him rather than inflict his NO, to encourage my own.
One word is harsher than NO… it is KNOW. When we say we know, we think we know, but know that we don’t know is far more accurate.
