Huh? Is it ok to say No? Yes, yes, yes! Are you overloaded already, simply do not want to participate in something that’s being requested of you, and/or you need to protect your mental health? Then, absolutely say NO to requests. No apologies necessary. Here’s some doable “NO” responses to requests: “I’m sorry, I can’t make it.” “I’m sorry, I’m not available to assist.” You do NOT need to justify your “No.” You can do it. Say “No” when you need to. Go for Positive!
