    This is an excellent article and something I will surely teach my(self) and my daughter. We both get ourselves into things that we don’t always want to be in and find it hard to say no.

      Thanks for sharing! I have learned over and over (the hard way!) that while it hurts to say no and I try not to do it often, the consequence of saying yes when I mean no is MUCH greater than the intial discomfort.

      I wish you and your daughter much luck!

    I do not have problem with saying yes and without me giving it any thought, it is probably due to the reasons that you highlight here. I think if more people said yes then we could all change and say yes. At the end of the day it is about give and take.
