Can You Say No to Others, Without Feeling Guilty?

February 27, 2020

If you’re loving, kind, and empathetic… showing up for others comes easily for you. But how often do you show up for yourself?

How often do you do what’s in your best interest, and not in someone else’s? How often do you say NO to someone else, without feeling guilty?

If you were like I used to be, then the answer is – not enough.

You know, there’s nothing wrong with being there for others. Serving them, supporting them, loving them. The thing is, you have to do the same for yourself. Otherwise, you’re in for what I call, an emotional burnout.

I know that’s not always easy, especially not when you have to put your foot down with people you very much care about… and people that may be used to you always being around. But sometimes the only way to practice self-care is to set some very clear, very strong boundaries.

So show up for yourself.
Be there for yourself.

I promise it’s only going to make a positive difference in your life.
