Why

How I wish I could say NO to people like some persons I know! I wonder how some people say NO so easily! Inability to say NO can be an irritating quality. I hate it.

Update:

Hmmm....Well, on the hindsight, I think this post of mine is kind of misleading. Well, when i say I cannot say NO, I should have added that I cannot say No to my loved ones. Otherwise, I can and I have easily said NO. However, when it comes to loved ones, saying No is tough.

Try once...specially when a YES is going to get you into trouble...Gives immense satisfaction later.

Saying 'Yes' is the easiest thing on earth. Saying 'No' is the most difficult one. That is why when Sonia Gandhi said 'No' to primeministership, the media described termed her Saint Sonia. Her stature has gone up with a firm 'No'.

Garima said...

"No" , "Yes" ... Equally difficult job to say ! Bioth needs courage & then need to be proved.

Hi Shobha hows you?
Yess same here I just wish that I had that quality as well.
hmmmmm

Divya said...

more often than not... the lack of ability to say 'no' (or 'yes' for that matter) is a result of our instinctive desire to gain approval from the opposite person. the problem can be solved by just doing what you feel and simply telling the other person "no... because i dont think so".

oh i know that feeling too.i hate being put in such situations where I want to refuse so bad but i can't.

A post's finally up.

But i think it is very useful word for some people like..........
So "No" have it's value and merit over "Yes" sometime..........
Keep on sharing, i will expect some long writing, it is too small.
Many Thanks

Start by saying "Maybe". U can eventually lead up to a NO. Its easy to get away with a "Ill think about it." Try!
But then again!
