Do you ever find that what you're saying with your mouth and what you're saying in your head do not match at all?
Like when you say "yes" but you'd much rather say "no"?
And I don't mean to your kids when they want another cookie.
I mean to adults - to your friends, your family, your co-workers, etc.?
I have a hard time saying "no."
It's usually because I don't want to disappoint anyone or because I'm concerned about what people will think.
I've gotten better at it since Dawson was born, simply because I had to say it because caring for him was more important, but it still nags at me. I've also gotten better at not automatically providing an excuse for when I do say "no", so I guess that's progress.
I'm beginning to think it's a girl thing - because I know many of my friends struggle with this, and I know NO MAN who has a problem with it.
If this is you, how do you get over it and just say "no"?
