“That woman speaks eighteen languages, and can’t say ‘No’ in any of them.”
How many languages do you speak and are you able to say ‘No’ in at least one of them?
Many people have trouble saying no. I did.
And one of the funny things about people who have trouble saying ‘No’ is that we have no trouble with people saying ‘No’ to us. I wonder why, then, we feel we will be judged harshly if we tell people to please just go away?
