Why its okay to be a ‘no’ Man…

Usually I am the person that says ‘no’ to someone that asks for a chip or to read the page in the newspaper I literally just to started to read. But I’m also usually the person that says ‘haha just kidding’ right afterwards so they don’t think I’m actually that bitchy.

But it got me thinking, is there actually anything wrong with saying that dreaded two letter word?

I want to be a ‘No’  man I really do, because being a ‘Yes’ man is really hard sometimes and people do take you for granted. And it’s not only that when you say ‘No’ you have to have that awfully long silence where the person who asked stares and thinks ‘surely she’s not being serious?!’ . Gosh I hate that silence.

NO I DONT WANT TO SPEND MY AFTERNOON GOING FRUIT AND VEG SHOPPING, HAVE YOU SEEN HOW CRAZY SAINSBURY’S IS ON A SATURDAY?!

But obviously I don’t say that and then off I go, to go fight over aubergines and other things.

As I’m getting older, I am starting to realise that it’s okay to say no, because there will be definitely people behind me to pick up the slack. I’m definitely just one little number in the long list of ‘can you do me a favour?!’ People.

So, yeah it’s okay to resist the urge to say the beautiful ‘Yes’ word, it doesn’t make you any worse a human being..well probably not.

Where do you stand on saying Yes? Are you more inclined to hoover someone entire house rather than upset the status quo?

Anyway got to go and mow someone’s lawn, I really couldn’t say no, I really couldn’t…

Love Robyn!

  1. There’s nothing wrong with saying “yes,” but it always needs to be directly followed up with, “but it’s gunna cost ya.” Cold hard cash bribes are most acceptable, however I will sometimes accept worship and ad hoc favours (demonstrated on a daily basis) until I consider the debt to be paid in full.

  2. I’m absolutely terrible at drawing this line. I go through patches of saying ‘yes’ to everything (and then getting overwhelmed, having some kind of minor breakdown and bailing on all those yeses) and saying ‘no’ to everything (and then feeling horribly guilty, realising that it would be easy to do the thing and I’m an awful person for not doing the thing, going back to the person and saying OF COURSE I WILL DO ALL THE THINGS and then doing all the things and also their laundry for a week to make up for initially saying no).
