Quotage: Don’t be afraid to say……”nope”

sayno

This quote is an excerpt from a book I have been reading called: “Boundaries- When to say yes, How to say no, to to take control of your life” by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend.

It has been really, really good for me, and I feel like I added a few new tools {and some great verbage} to my life’s tool belt.

  1. Great book! Saying no is something that I struggle with! Love your site! I’ve been a fan of your posts and furniture redos for a while now.

    • Laura, me too! But this book has really helped give some power and language that I can get behind and use. Great tool! Thank you for your sweet words too! :}

  2. Can;t remember who said to use this, but it works well:
    Don’t just say no, instead say “It’s impossible.”
    There’s no opening there for someone to argue with you.

    I’m looking forward to reading the book. Thanks for the reading suggestion.

    • MJ….interesting thought for sure! :} impossible is quite the word isn’t it?! I hope you enjoy the book!
