I’m learning the lesson of honoring my No…and I had to do it the hard way. What I’m learning is that my NO is valuable, and that I must hold on to it in order to maintain my peace. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with saying No, especially when you know that saying Yes is going to push you out of your “Peace Zone”.
