I need to learn to say yes more.
I also need to learn to say no more.
Sometimes, I give in so easily. Other times, I'm so afraid that I stop myself from exploring anything new.
I rarely do things for myself. I always do things for other people. I don't see this entirely as a bad thing. I'd very much like my legacy to be remembered for helping others. This probably won't be the case.
One of the biggest decisions I've ever made in my life was one day to pack up everything that I own and move across the country.
One of the biggest decisions I ever made of my life was to pack up everything I own and move back across the country.
I want to live an adventurous life, but often I'm too scared to say yes to those moments.
Yet, I have no problem saying yes to people, despite how little I may be appreciated, if at all.
I've said yes so many times, that people assume I'll say yes. I've been walked all over; too many footsteps to count. Yet if I knew when it was okay to say no, I'd learn how to stand on my own two feet. This is something I'm afraid I can't do.
The paradox of my life is that:
I need to learn to say yes more, but I also need to say no more often too.
Looking back, I see my life as a series of yes and no moments, and honestly there were a lot of times I said the wrong answer.
I can't figure out the right balance.
I don't regret the way things worked out in my life. Not a single thing. If it weren't for all those wrong answers, I wouldn't be seeking the right ones now.
My only worry, for my own sake, is that I need to know when I need to say yes or no for me. I've gotten so used to giving the answer that other people want to hear, or saying the answer that fear is telling me.
I think first I should start with saying "No" to fear.
