If you are a Superwoman, I know you have a hard time saying no. Why is that? Why is it that Superwoman has such a hard time saying no? Well, it’s because you believe that by saying no the other person is going to a.) be extremely upset with you (and you want everyone to love you), b.) think you can’t handle said task (and you can’t have people doubting your abilities, you have a reputation to protect) or c) think you are a selfish chick (and selfish is a word you’ve learned is horrible to be associated with)!
In reality, you have no idea how they are going to respond and that’s not your business, nor your concern. State your no and allow the other person to handle the response. They’ll either try to con you into doing it, find another Superwoman to do it for them or they’ll do it themselves. Don’t worry about it. Worry about taking care of YOU!
