Do you have trouble saying no? Do you hate letting others down and feel guilty if you can’t say yes?
If so, you’re not alone…but you’re probably also over-committed and maybe even nursing resentment in your heart that comes when we lack boundaries.
It can be so hard to say no, but its important to learn how to have boundaries without guilt.
In Episode 14 of the No More Perfect Podcast, I share twelve strategies that will help you say no. These can help you manage every day “asks” as well as long term commitments.
Saying no can enhance your relationships, your soul care, and your self-care. Saying no creates the margin we desperately need in our lives. Saying no gives us time for the things that bring us life so we do not face burnout.
If you struggle saying no, make sure you say YES to this episode!

Thank you! Capable does not mean called!
I am retired and find it so hard to say no. I just heard your pod cast on this subject and already know one area to eliminate in my life,which is easy to do as it has been curtailed during the pandemic and I can just not return when things are more normal. I have struggled to say no when I know I am capable and don’t know others who can fill the need. I know I need more downtime or white space so will pray about what I am doing now. Thank you for these 12 steps to consider and follow.
Linda, I’m so glad it has challenged you to think more intently about being a steward of your time and energy. You can do it!
