8 Ways to Say No
Without Feeling Mean
You may have heard it said, “Sometimes saying ‘no’ to someone else says ‘yes’ to yourself” — to your emotional needs, your desires, your dreams or even your safety. But knowing the practice is wise and acting on it are completely different things.
Provide an Alternative You’re Comfortable With
“No” doesn’t have to end of the conversation or rule out parts you’re up for. By providing an alternative, you can protect your own needs and desires without rejecting the other person.
