“Learn to say “no” without explaining yourself.”

I think we all find it natural when we say no to follow it with a reason, i.e. “I’ve a dental appointment, visiting a friend, short of funds, a previous engagement, etc. Just force of habit really, believing that we need to explain as our refusal needs justifying by softening the blow for whoever is asking. However, this can become tricky as there can’t be many of us who haven’t been caught out in a white lie at some time or another? Even if you have a legitimate reason for refusing, there’s no rule that says you have to explain yourself or else! So, if you want to say no, just say it. No excuses. There, feel better? Good.
