In my series of easing up your life

Learning how to say no

Think in simple terms why you don't want to say yes - in saying no - don't criticize the receptor of your "NO."

Offer an alternative - if that might change things

Guilt should not be a consideration in not saying no

Release yourself from any unwanted obligation - the quicker the better.

"No" is a reply to a request - Just say NO! without personality or justification - and be honest... no excuses - "sorry" is an excuse!

always please yourself first.  Will you be criticized..., lose a friend?
criticized yes (who cares) ... lose a friend no! Lose someone other than a friend - who cares?
