Why You Should Treat Yourself To Saying 'No' More This Year

In a recent interview with NY Mag, Carmen Electra opens up about her decision to say “no” to things more. “It’s important in dating to say no, in your daily life, and with your friends. I think boundaries are really healthy,” she said. To be honest, this makes complete sense and Electra isn’t the first person to come up with this so-called mantra. Here’s why you should treat yourself to saying “no” more in 2016.

If you keep finding yourself in uncomfortable situations, personal or professional, then you need to learn how to say no. By saying no to people, you create boundaries for yourself. “When you feel guilty about having boundaries in your life, that’s a problem,” Electra says. “People don’t respond to boundaries well; they think that you’re being selfish. But if you’re not taking care of yourself, then you can’t take care of anyone else.”

As Warren Buffet famously said, “the difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say no to almost everything.”

The bottom line: stick up for yourself and respect yourself by saying no.
