We often get overwhelmed in life. Its not the fault of others, but it is often the fault of our desire to say YES! When we say yes to too many things we become victim to our desire to please, to be a part of things, to run things, and to not disappoint others.
One thing that we can learn from saying no is that our life can be simplified because there are plenty of things that we can say no to and still be effective. Saying yes all the time keeps you busy, but it can also exhaust you. You need to see what is really important in your life. Once you discover that you can say NO and feel better about your decision to make time for yourself and those that matter most you will gain a new perspective on life.
