No!!!!! That’s the first word kids learn to use in the proper context. They are emphatic in making their point- a “no”, means No.
When do we lose the strength of character to say “no” when we do not want to do something? How often do we end up saying “yes”, when actually we mean “no”. Why do we cringe from uttering the word we mean, and then hate ourselves for being coerced into doing something we do not wish to?
If we were honest enough to say “no”, when we mean “no”, wouldn’t we all be much better off?
"A 'No' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble. "
Mohandas Karamchand "Mahatma" Gandhi
2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948
