THE SECRET TO SAYING "NO" | MY KIND + CLEAR COMMUNICATION FRAMEWORK

 

Key takeaways:

  1. Communicate your love and desire for a healthy relationship and share why the conversation is imperative for the loving relationship you want.

  2. Use “I feel” statements, and don’t blame or make character judgments. Keep your focus on your feelings and their behavior.

  3. Make a simple, clear request for a change in behavior, and share why if necessary.

  4. Express the consequence if necessary. (Never express a consequence you aren’t ready to use).

  5. Remind them of your love for them and why you are making this boundary.

  BONUS** Ways to say NO:

  • No thanks!

  • I appreciate the opportunity, but I’m currently too busy.

  • I’m not available for that.

  • Thanks for thinking of me. I need to focus on my family right now.

  • In order to focus on my work, I’m going to have to decline.

  • I don’t have the energy right now.

  • No.

  • Maybe next time!

  • And if you have to, “Let me think about it. I’ll get back to you!” (then get back to them!)


“NO” is always about creating the space for your values and all the HELL YES in your life.
