Are anyone here?
Have you ever say yes to something you don’t want to? Because of peer pressure, or any other pressure for that matter. I remember several times in my life where I did just that. It had something to do with other people pressuring me, and it wasn’t always friend. It was sometimes family. Not sometimes, though, back then it was a lot family HAHA.
One day I just tell myself that I don’t want to be that girl anymore, and what’s done is done, I don’t wanna talk about it anymore, and it’s not really my problem anymore that anyone else on the other side of that has a problem whether they’re not sensitive, or they’re not empathetic, or whether they’re straight up bully which means they are doing the pressuring on purpose.
There’s nothing wrong with saying no, and it’s definitely not your business how they take your no. When someone is asking you to do something that makes you uncomfortable, you can say no. If they push it, say no harder. If they threat you, tell someone else. Seriously. Don’t be afraid when you’re doing the right thing.
Sometimes we all take comfort in the wrong things. So I know it’s easier said than done, and I know it took a lot of courage if it’s not something you do every time. But those sweats, those nervousness will be worth it. Because no one should do anything to you without your consent. So if they don’t understand your ‘no’, say it harder.
