JUST SAYING NO when it doesn't work for your schedule or your emotional health is absolutley neccesary when you're a Mom and/or a Step Mom in a blended family. If you're anything like me - you may be saying YES when inside you're screaming not only NO, BUT HELL NO!
It's a common habit for StepMom's of a blended family to do, especially when you're the newbie on the block! You want to be liked, maybe even loved and you mistakenly think saying YES - being everyone's Go To Gal will you get you there, but it rarely does.
So how do you get to a place of respect and possibly in the process feel liked, maybe even loved? Strangely enough it's saying NO when need be. I know it sounds crazy, but if you respect your time others will as well.
I've shared some of my way's of saying NO on my newest video - even how I've said NO when I haven't actually been asked a question!
It really is as easy as saying NO! Just don't be a bitch when you do say it! Your tone can say respect me or go jump of a cliff and die! Practice in the mirror a few times before giving it a whirl. I promise you will enjoy how it makes you feel to Just Say No when need be!
