Why is it difficult to say no ? even to our #children

I am a recovered bulimic, a recovered codependent and a recovered people pleaser. I find it difficult to say no, even to my children because I love them so much. However, I learn, I grow, I change. It made me laugh when my daughter said once that she knew I loved her because I wasn’t always saying yes to what she was asking. No is integrity. No is saying yes to myself. As a matter of fact, saying No to my kids when I have to makes me a better mama. I find it so obvious writing it! I even say to my children that knowing when and how to say No is the most important thing.

 

What do you think my friend my sister?
