When You Say No To Someone & They Get Upset, It Doesn’t Mean You Should Have Said Yes

Having boundaries and communicating them is part of personal growth. Not doing what we don’t want to do, not over-extending ourselves, not putting someone else’s comfort ahead of our own needs, these are boundaries. We will upset some people when we begin to have or express these boundaries, especially so when we start. These boundaries are helpful to us though they can be uncomfortable for others to receive and for us to communicate. The more we do it, the easier it becomes. The reaction or response of others has everything to do with them and little to do with us. We cannot control how others behave or think, we can only control how we behave and think. We don’t need to explain ourselves, or compromise on our boundaries. We are enough. Sometimes we just need to state how we feel and what is or isn’t acceptable and say then say nothing else. You are enough. When you say no to someone and they get upset, it doesn’t mean you should have said yes.
