Day 13 in my series of blogs to celebrate #WorldPeaceDay.
Learn to say both Yes and No with Discernment.
Do you ever find yourself saying Yes when really you should have said No? And then when you do say No, you end up feeling guilty about this…
Sometimes the greatest gift that we can offer someone is to say No.
When we say a big healthy No to a child, to stop them eating too many sweets or behaving badly, we are showing them that we care and we are demonstrating where and when and how, to invest in healthy limits.
When we say a big healthy No to any form of abuse or any form of destructive or damaging behaviour whether in others or within ourselves we are making a very clear statement of health. We do no-one any favours when we allow or condone something that isn’t okay. Our avoidance colludes with the situation and enables it to continue.
I wish to invite you to develop an inner clarity as to what constitutes a healthy Yes and a healthy No and stand firm in this… you are not alone in wanting to see a better world.
When we say No to something or to someone unhealthy we are saying Yes to life.
