Dear Self,

I struggle with saying no.

I am so good at twisting myself into a shape that might just fit this particular situation because I couldn’t possibly just simply look at it and say…

“Hey, that looks really great…for someone else. Thanks, but no thanks.”  

Saying no isn’t always an instant relief. I have ‘no’ regrets.

That is the kind of ‘what if I had of said yes what amazing things might have happened?’ regrets that happen just after saying no.

Funnily enough I don’t spend time imagining all the horrors that I avoided because I didn’t say yes.

Funny that.
