          1. oh sorry……i just checked it……and this stupid “spam code” had caught it……i gave it a few clicks of my hand…….so it ought to teach it a lesson 🙂 🙂

    1. yes Aditi.. we are on the same lines…if we have that true relationship, they will never make us fall into that confusion. they will leave it to our freedom, respecting our space.

  1. Yes, ‘No’ is not a preferred /easy option, especially when the apprehension of hurting someone close, who, you feel would prefer a ‘Yes’. But those with the courage of conviction to say ‘No’ need not feel guilty, for, their real friends would understand & appreciate the genuineness of that ‘No’.

    And, very much yes, ma’am akhila, a beautiful post. cheers

  2. i am learning that art of saying ‘no’..;)…Really tough…even i feel like i couldnt express it fully in those few lines..didnt have a punch in those words..

  3. I cannot agree with you more, Akhila! A post with a lot of relevance to what I just had in my mind. It is the most difficult word to speak out sometimes without hurting someone and without them misunderstanding your answer to be rejection or downright denial. “Who respect my freedom of expression.” so well expressed! Yes, you need to express your views and expression. Thank you for sharing!

    1. I can’t be rude to people. Like people in general. I am scared that people will not like me if I say no to them. I know it’s stupid but it is what it is. 🙂

  4. Yes very true Akhila. . I can relate to this and most of us can relate to this as we face it daily. There are only a few people with whom we feel at ease of saying no. With others, we just try to please them and say yes even though inside we know we wanted to say ‘no’.. People with whom we feel free to talk irrespective of whether they will agree or disagree upon, are real friends. .

    Good evening. 🙂

  5. Saying No is an art also. One of my friends, she does it very well..she can say ‘no’ without making others angry! I’m sort of dumb…I blatantly say ‘no’ and as you’ve said, only true friends can take that. And, we don’t have a lot of true friends…

Do you have something to tell me on this post?
