“A ‘no’ uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a ‘yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.” ~~Mahatma Gandhi
I love this quote. I call it the “Honorable No.” Do you have certain people in your life — a boss, colleague, or loved one perhaps — that you have a hard time saying “no” to? Are there certain situations that you find easier to just say “yes” because you don’t want to deal with the hassle of what a “no” will produce? Be careful. Saying “yes” when you really mean “no” is a dreadful decision.
