I have to admit, I’m a PEOPLE PLEASER. I want to make everybody happy. And I HATE saying ‘no’.
It seems like so many people want me to do something that I just can’t possibly fit in, would run me down, or is just more than I can handle – and I’m forced to say “NO”. It always makes me feel like I’m LETTING PEOPLE DOWN.
But, I’m pretty sure some of the same stuff happens to you, too.
EVERYBODY wants a piece of you! You feel obligated to say “yes” because you don’t want anyone to be mad at you.
We can all get stuck in this “yes trap” because we have an APPROVAL ADDICTION! The Bible warns us that fearing people is a dangerous TRAP!
“No” is NOT a bad word! No” isactually, an EMPOWERING word
