Happiness: You Can Say No
|Self Development : Happiness|
Many people feel pressured to do the bidding and wishes of others. This is a nice character trait to have - it means you feel responsible to others and want to please.
However the impact on yourself can be that you do things that you would not naturally or normally do. Therefore you should not be afraid to say 'No' when you want to - if a friend starts to take advantages of your lifts to work every day, for instance.
If you feel that you are doing something that you resent, then next time the situation comes up, just say No. You can give a reason if you wish, but don't be afraid just to say that something is not for you.
Being autonomous and independent are two key traits of most people who state that they are happy.
