When you’re sure about saying ‘no,’ say it with as few words as possible.
When you’re ready to get out of someone else’s business, and the phrase, “Not my circus, not my monkeys,” is your new mantra, you may be tempted to step up on a soapbox. Time to tell the world about your newfound boundaries and how you found inner peace? Nope. Check out ASK DR TRISH on how to say no.
The More You’re Sure, The Less You Need to Convince – Anyone
If you find yourself over-explaining, getting frustrated that other people just don’t get it that you’re no longer in the business of fixing other people’s problems – then you’re still in their business, because you’re waiting for them to ‘get it.’ Stop talking so much. Do a little inner reflection on why you’re so needy that you want everyone to appreciate your balanced, centered life. And then, let it go. Your loved ones will benefit most when you are happy. Happy people are magnets for happy family and co-workers and strangers. Spread the magnetic field– but don’t try to convince anyone of anything. Not your circus. But you can still enjoy the show!
