So you have to set aside your own priorities and prioritize the work of others.
- You need to know that you are not able to do everything
- You have to accept you can’t keep everyone happy
- You have to accept that this is not selfishly saying No
- If saying No bothers you, you can offer alternatives
But you should know that as long as you do not have the skill to say No, you do not own your time and you are actually giving your time to others.
No need to explain, finally with a short reason, say No!
Sometimes low self-esteem makes you powerless to say no. youSay yes to any unreasonable or irrelevant request and accept it to make yourself more lovable. But in reality, this is gradually becoming a permanent task for you, and people will always expect their requests, even if irrelevant, to be accepted by you.
And in the end, it is you who, instead of saving your precious time and prioritizing yourself, are doing the work of others.
When an unreasonable or irrelevant request is made to you, you should be able to say no without apology.
Apologizing answers actually tell others, “Although I do not want to do this. But I still want you to love me. “So you can change my mind by applying emotional pressure.”
Sometimes these requests are not irrelevant, but they make it impossible for you to do the tasks that are a high priority in your planning. If the applicant is very important to you, you can finally offer them an alternative solution.
Remember that time passes quickly and this is your most valuable asset.
