Setting one's needs first and developing the ability to say "no" are essential for self-care and preserving one's well-being. Recognizing the significance of and necessity for paying attention to our own wants, values, and boundaries is crucial. When we put ourselves first, we prioritize our physical, mental, and emotional health, which helps us to be our best selves in all areas of life.

Saying "no" demonstrates independence and respect. It enables us to set restrictions and safeguard our financial, time, and energy resources. We may make room for the relationships and activities that genuinely feed us by saying no to commitments or duties that conflict with our values or overburden us. Saying no enables us to prioritize our goals and focus on activities that promote our personal development and fulfillment.

Confidently declining a request promotes positive relationships and communication. By being upfront and honest about our limitations and needs, we promote authenticity and trust in our interactions with others. It helps us to establish clear boundaries and prevent the onset of rage or tiredness. Saying no may be an act of self-preservation since it enables us to maintain a healthy balance between giving and receiving and builds better connections with others. By prioritizing ourselves and appreciating the power of saying no, we ultimately lay the groundwork for our own happiness, fulfillment, and real relationships.

Hi, it's me . In the last session we broke down no, and how it made us feel. I wanna say it's okay to put yourself first. Saying no to something is saying yes to something else. Saying no to a friend, a coworker, a relative, is essentially saying yes to ourselves, our alignment, and our peace of mind. I also wanna acknowledge that saying no, especially when you're first starting with spiritual practice, can be difficult and uncomfortable, but I promise you, it gets better in time. I say no all the time for myself in my relationship with God, and it's still difficult, but again, it gets better. So let's get into this journal prompt again, feel free to pause, take as much time as you'd like. First question. What would feel freeing to say no to? How can you put yourself first without feeling guilty? What boundaries can you set up to help make saying no easier? How might your life feel different if you honored yourself and said no when you wanted?
