The joy of saying NO

How often do you say yes to extra tasks at work or invitations to events you do not want to attend?

Often people say yes from a fear driven place, "guilt, "seeking approval from others", "fear of what would people think" and FOMO "fear of missing out" and many other insecurities.

Saying Yes to everything can leave you feeling tired and exhausted. Every yes when it should be a no leads to a build up of bad feelings such as resentment, poor quality of work, stress, exhaustion, feeling critical of yourself, feeling irritated with others involved, feeling there isn't enough time etc. You know you wanted to say no, so you feel bad because you didn't listen to the most important person in your priority list "YOU".
