Struggle to say no to people? Read a little about the benefits of protecting yourself. I would add to this that allowing others to say no to you is a critical part of universal acceptance of others as well as yourself. When people say no to you, how do you react? What meaning do you give to their 'no'? Do you believe that people should never say 'no' to you? Explore your thoughts about the powerful 'no' and learn when and how to use it but don't forget to learn how to hear it.
