Do you know one of the most difficult things to say ?? One is “No” and the other is “I am Sorry”. Really it is very difficult to say one of these. One needs a big heart to say it to someone.
Do you who why it is so difficult to say “No” and “I am Sorry” ? Because it hurts our big fat EGO. And anything in this world which hurts our ego is really very difficult to do. That’s why i say that one needs be courageous to say it to someone else. In the beginning it hurts a lot to say it. It may also hurt someone you are saying. But say it from your heart and it will be more meaningful. And finally the results will be good.
We feel that by saying “No” we are accepting that we cannot do something. But believe me sometimes it is the best thing to do. Instead of doing something halfheartedly why not say “No” ? It is much better not to do something than to do it unwillingly. Of course later on when the circumstances are better it can be done. What i mean to say is that saying “No” means “Not now”, it does not mean “Never” !
By saying sorry we accept that we did something wrong and we won’t repeat it again in future. Accepting one’s mistake is a big thing to do. But it is also the first step to correct ourselves. All cannot do it easily. But sometimes like i said earlier, it is the best thing that can be done both for ourselves as well as for others.
Do you want to know the easiest way of saying “No” and “I am Sorry”? It’s very simple and easy. With a little bit of effort anyone can master it. Just try to imagine the other person is in front of you and then just say it. Imagine the reaction of that person. Think how will you reply in that case. Repeat this until you feel confident enough to say it to the person in reality. And in most cases the situation will be similar to the case you imagined!
The biggest benefit of saying “No” and “I am Sorry” is the feeling of relief. As if a big mountain has been removed from our heads. It feels good. A feeling of great joy and satisfaction engulfs us and makes us feel relieved.
So ? Have you been thinking to say it to someone since a long time ? Go ahead ! Do it today. Trust me, it won’t be all that difficult as you feel. You can do it !
