My Next Tattoo

I really think I need to get a tattoo that reads

JUST SAY NO

Why is it so hard for me to tell people NO??? I think I am just one of those "people pleasers"....never wanting to disappoint anyone but then totally burning myself out because I can't say No when I should.

Maybe if I learn to say no in some foreign languages it might make it easier.....any suggestions?

Too funny Carolyn, I was going to say the same thing!

So where will you put your just say NO tattoo, because I probably need one too!

I hate to tell you, but you just have to stop saying yes cold turkey! And you'll feel mean for a while, but then that feeling of empowerment will hit and you'll know you are doing the right thing! Good luck. :)

Nope......uh-uh......no way....not on your life.....:)

As a people pleaser myself, I need some advice, too! :)

I have a hard time saying no to people as well, don't feel bad. :) It is just a part of human nature. ;)

By the way, umm....you've been tagged!

No, No No. Just say it. You will feel powerful when you do. I can't do everything, so I just tell people no, sorry but I have other things I need to get done (ie. family, etc). You can do it! I tagged you too so now you gotta add the quick little tag thing to your blog!

I used to be the same way, always putting my life on the back burner. One day I had enough and started saying no. It gets easier as time goes on. I don't always say no but I do know my limits now! Save the tattoo for something better chicky! LOL
