When you feel the need to explain or justify why you are doing something or why you can’t do it you are giving your power away. You don’t need to try and make people feel better or understand your decisions.
We do this because we don’t want to upset people or we don’t want them to think badly of us. The truth is, they won’t – or if they do, then these are not people you want to be around anyway.
This week be aware of whenever you find yourself trying to explain yourself and your decisions. See if you can simply say no without the explanations and notice how it feels.
