I am finally feeling more confident in who I am and what I want and finally being able to just say “Thanks anyway” when someone offers something to me that I truly am not interested in. In the not so distant past, I would waffle a bit and then say “Ok” to whatever suggestion is made to me, and totally regretting a change in my plans. Now I am not amiss to new ideas, but I finally am done with feeling manipulated, especially with offers to purchase something for me. It is so freeing to just say “Thanks anyway.”
What statements have freed you?
