Very often we say yes to other people’s demands – co-workers, friends, family members – and ignore the uneasy feeling.
We think we have to continue living as we did before we discovered our creative self.
We don’t want to disappoint our partner, our children, our parents.
And we wonder why we get angry, why we want out of some situations, why we feel so misunderstood.
When I started to work with my creative self, we needed much time, time alone, time to listen, time to write.
When I focussed too much on my “obligations” , on what I “should” do, mostly to keep other people happy I felt something inside rebel against this.
I tried to ignore it. I tried not to listen.
Didn’t work. So sometimes you have to trust yourself, your gut feeling. You have to put yourself first.
The thing is when you give your creative self the room and love it and love yourself more you’ll be able to love others more. You’ll be authentic and loving to others, too.
Where can you say “No” today?
