My mom used to say that my face didn't help either, since I look like a lamb, haha.
It's not because I'm scared of the consequences after declining a person's request. I just like to please and make people happy ...
Especially because I always trust people's good intentions.
I know, however, that that's not good and one has to be able to set some boundaries.
I wanted to give it a try, so I thought of ways to help me get in the say no mindset. The only idea I came up with was to dress like a bitch and look mean, haha.
Oh, yes, and frown with my eyes a little. If you've ever heard Tyra Banks talking about the smile with your eyes thing, well, I mean exactly the opposite.
Has it worked yet? Absolutely not.
My outfit only made me feel older and sweat like a pig. I won't give up, though.
A couple of days ago, I watched Sympathy for Lady Vengeance and it gave me hope. Thank you, Marie for having recommended it in your blog!
I know it's kind of random to throw this in here, but if you've seen it, you know what I mean. She's a very dark Amelie Poulain ... maybe? She's kind and well-meaning but she's also macabre and has the will and strength to do what she thinks she has to do. I need that.
Does anybody have a tip on to how to learn to say no?
Do you ever feel the same way?
Have a FUN weekend! ;D
Small print: I want to make clear that I am not planning to kill anybody (as in the movie).
Smallest print: Although I occasionally think about it ... But I'd never do it.
