NO can be a love word
NO can be a love word. ~Ron Palmer
NO is a word of love and health when we consider lose-lose situations or risks that are not risks at all but traps. For many of us, learning to say "NO" as a complete sentence is a great sign of growth. When we can turn down a bad idea or a dangerous invitation without justification or explanation, we are truly on our way to freedom.
Just as often as it is brave and good and hopeful to say yes it is appropriate and beneficial to say NO.
Learning to say NO will break my bonds of passivity.
