How does striving for more self-confidence relate to saying no?
The word “no” sounds short and sweet, but it can cut through the soul like a knife. It’s very expressive and suggests that it is a final decision. It just takes strength to say no. Lots of people need more self-confidence, than the one that you have right now to be able to say no decisively.
You start to give explanations, to find excuses ….
Confidence and self-esteem are important qualities
You feel uncomfortable, in some cases guilty. In fear of the other person’s current reaction, do not say “no” directly. So you leave the other hopes. In this way situations begin that lead to an eternal back and forth. The whole thing sounds familiar to you?
Is it hard for you to say no either??
How are those who say “no” perceived?
Most of the time you can’t say “no” because you’re afraid that people will think or talk badly about you. First, you have to ask yourself how you perceive it when others behave like this towards you. Do you speak ill of “no” people yourself? Do you feel that you have been treated unfairly when this happens to you? Sometimes you may be right too.
But if you are hurt by saying “no” in all situations, then you may be misunderstanding.
Most of the time we have the wrong idea of selfishness. It is not to be equated with the ability to put one’s own interests before those of others. We all have to think of ourselves first to be fine. This is the only way we are in shape to help other people. If you look at it that way, you wouldn’t find the “no” too bad. Remember all the speaking situations in which you said “yes”. We all usually get enough help if we really look for it and don’t expect everyone to be available at all times. Better take this attitude! So saying “no” won’t sound too bad either in your mouth or in others’ mouths.
Being more confident will help you say no
You always say “yes” even though you mean “no”?
You may understand the other person when they say “no” that you cannot say that yourself. This is probably due to a lack of self-confidence. You just have to strengthen it.
Strengthen your own self-confidence
Learn to be more confident
Clear assessment of the situation
In order to give the appropriate “yes” or “no” answer, you would have to assess the situation correctly. Above all, be fair to yourself. Because someone thinks they need help, that doesn’t necessarily have to be true! Sometimes these people scream the loudest for help that doesn’t really need it. By sacrificing yourself for such people, you don’t have the strength to deal with the real problems in your friends and family. And unfortunately these keep coming back on the daily schedule.
Being able to say no is important
Be categorical in your decision
In addition, you are not really helping other people through the superfluous support. People have to learn to deal with most problems on their own. By constantly transferring their own tasks to other people, they do not develop any further. Whom does that even help??
If you believe in yourself, you achieve more in life
