Why do we have such a hard time saying: No or No Thank you.
It should be easy right.
It’s a little word or two words.
Someone invites you to something you have no interest in attending.
I would like to be able to just say: No. No Thank You.
But I feel as though I need to offer an excuse too.
Why do I need to validate why I said no?
I never want to hurt someone’s feelings.
But there are LOTS of times when I just prefer not to do things.
Also lots of times I don’t want to spend money.
Maybe I don’t want to drive an hour there and back, knowing I will be unhappy.
Maybe I don’t want to take a day off and spend it with people I see once every five years.
I like to use my time for ME!!!!
Ugh just reading this it sounds like I am horrible.
But, at my age I am all about the: No thank you.
(no explanation needed!!!!!)
