Do you ever feel guilty over saying no? It’s more common than you think.
The thing is, time is something we never get back – so it’s important to make the most of everyday and spend our time wisely.
Now, wanting to say no is one thing. Actually going through with it is another.
Have a Script
Having a “saying no” script or plan can be very helpful.
Here are a few phrases you can use the next time you’re afraid to say no…
1) “Let me check my calendar and get back to you.”
2) “Thank you so much for thinking of me. However, I don’t think I’ll be able to attend.”
3) “Unfortunately my calendar is full. I hope you all have fun!”
