In our lives the word “No” is regularly used. It is very important. It is a simple word but it helps us not to bow to peer-pressure. If necessary there is no guilt in saying ‘no.’ but in moderation it helps us; saying no to everything can hinder us in our lives. Sometimes people suggest the right things for us even when we might not think it. But no is still very necessary in our day-to-day lives.
It can help us keep out of the involvement with drugs, crime, peer pressure or even personal things. One simple word of no could keep somebody’s life on track; something small can turn into something big and could possibly change somebody’s life but the simple word “No” could change all that. Saying no is the best self care.
