What is more difficult? To go with the flow and leave things as they are, or to put your foot down and say no? The answer is obvious. It is the latter of course. The first means inaction and is a common folly when we are faced with difficult situations at work, school, or at home. It’s just easier to sit back and do nothing.
However, sometimes, there is just too much pain and heartbreak to continue with things the way that they are. So we have to put our foot down. We have to say no to people who expect us to say yes. And this is hard because it means confrontation and unpleasantness.
If you are wavering, read through our carefully handpicked list of quotes especially selected for people who feel that enough is enough. You will surely get your affirmation that your feelings are valid.
