WHY IT IS IMPORTANT: Just saying “No” helps you establish your financial boundaries. If you find yourself in a situation where you do not have the money to borrow, loan, or give, just simply say “No.” Just saying “No” puts you at an advantage in your own budget advocacy. If you are not advocating for your own finances who else is. Understanding when to say, “No” is very important too.
KEY POINT(S): Just saying, “No.” is a clear understanding of your limits and helps to establish boundaries internal, external, and any other instances that could possibly serve as a plan detractor.
MY EXPERIENCE: Because I hate hearing, No, it is hard for me sometimes to say, “No,” I am sometimes more of a “Why Not?” However, when I found that I was in a pinch and didn’t have the means, I found that there was an internal embarrassment I felt not having enough to help someone who thought of me enough to think that I was able to help, but in essence not be able to. It took some time for me to recognize my own limitations and emotional response to not being able to help EVERYONE financially and “No” has become easier said over the years.
QUESTIONS FOR YOU: When do you find it hardest to say, “NO”? When is saying “No” easiest or you?
