used to be a serial people pleaser.
I never said no to anyone.
With that said, if you fall into the category of "people pleaser" saying no can become one of your greatest acts of self care.
First I want to clarify that I am not advocating for telling everyone no just because you don't feel like it. There is a little thing called sacrifice that will come into play when making a decision. I had to check myself about this. Self-care is important but lending to selfishness is not healthy for you or the relationships in your life.
Read on, and I'll get to that in a bit.
