1. Was I asked to do it?

2. Do I want to do it?

3. Is it good for me to do it?

When I can be honest with myself, I can be honest with others. They may not like it, but they will still love me. “Yes” and “no” are complete sentences. If “no” feels harsh, try:

“I prefer not to.”

How can someone argue with a personal preference?

In addition to setting me up for resentments, saying yes to things that I don’t want to do and saying no to things that I really want to do is a betrayal of self.”
