I’ve always faced great difficulty in saying no to people.
When I wanted to move on from my first company, I resigned on Whatsapp.
When my seniors wanted me to join their team, I said no over Whatsapp.
Instead of meeting her, I broke up with my ex on Whatsapp.
Guess what? Whatsapp is easy.
When I thought about it deeply, I realized all this was to avoid the difficult conversations.
Often times, such conversations display maturity, professionalism, respect and in turn builds courage, strength, confidence & assertiveness to your character.
Over time, I learnt that we gotta embrace the hard, difficult things in life. Being uncomfortable is where all the growth is.
