How many times do you say yes at your own expense? How many times do you say yes because it’s the “right” thing to do? How many times do you say yes when you’d much rather say no; the yes slipping out as your mouth turns into a (fake) smile, as you sigh on the inside? How many times do you say yes because you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings or maybe because you’re trying to earn their love?
