Do you find yourself saying “yes” to too many things and discover later that you are
stretched too thin? Do you say “yes” to others at the expense of yourself? Is there a family member, friend, PTO president, boss or colleague that you just can’t say “no” to?

 If this is true, you are not alone. With many demands and expectations pressing
on us, it is easy to become overextended and wondering how we are going to get
through the week. We feel resentful that we are spending our precious free time
doing things we don’t want to do.

Saying “yes” to yourself often begins with disappointing someone else.

 In this workshop we will explore:

  • The types of commitments that put us over the edge;

  • What makes it challenging to say “no"?

  • How to risk disappointing others to be true to yourself.

On the other side of “no” lies the possibility of a more peaceful and satisfying life.
