There comes a time when you don’t know what should be your next step forward, when you are not sure whether what you are doing is right or not, when no one supports you, when you feel that no one listens to your prayers, when you stop believing in yourself, when you stop believing in almighty. Well!! This post is an attempt to overcome such a time.

FACTS: There are people who can’t say NO to anyone due to one of the following reasons:
  • They don’t want to hurt other person.
  • They don’t want to let other person know that they are not capable of doing that particular task.
  • They have a bad habit of saying YES to everything whether right or wrong for them.
  • They are handicapped and can’t speak (suffering from muteness).
  • And finally there are some who don’t say NO ever and always stick to whatever they say.

GIVEN THAT: Till now the only person who fulfilled the 5th reason was Jesus Christ.

OBSERVATIONS: You will easily find a person who is:
  • Always preoccupied with work which least concerns them i.e doing some else’ work.
  • Always trying to do something at which they are not good at so as to prove that they do know how to do that.
  • Doing something which at the end will only cause harm to them.
  • Unable to say NO, even if you ask him that is he worried about situation he is in.

INFERENCES: All the above are people who due to reasons only known to them are doing the things which they actually don’t want to are just adding up the count for the people who can’t say NO. And it seems I also fall in this category and reason for me being like this is an amalgamation of first three points in facts.

DISADVANTAGES: It is never good to say yes to everything because:
  • You end up with other person’s priorities as your priority.
  • You will end giving preference to people who don’t deserve that.
  • It only leads to frustration and stress.
  • One ends up losing focus on what is good for him because of all these distractions.

THE DECISION: I will try to say ‘NO’ from now on. I hope I am able to achieve this.

AFTER THOUGHT: In a hope that some people visiting my blog are also in this category I request them to please comment on it :P.
