Hiya. sometimes we all need reminding that it’s okay to say “no” to things, even if other people don’t like it. you don’t owe anybody anything. you don’t owe them your body, your time, your energy, your possessions. you have as much right to freedom as everybody else, yet society teaches us that saying “no” to people should be awkward and uncomfortable. the hidden message is that the comfort and convenience of others is more important than you own. if you find saying “no” to people uncomfortable, start to do it more. the only way to combat a fear is by facing it. start to distance yourself from people who pressure you into saying “yes” or who try to make you feel bad about asserting your own needs.
