[One of the hardest things I’ve had to learn to say] in order to keep #love strong in my #relationships was “NO,” I won’t lend you the money.
Even though, I knew how much my family member needed the financial support and was counting on me once again to bail them out, for the health of our #relationship and my bank account-- I had to learn to say, “no." As a solution, instead, of offering a temporary band- aid, what I offered my loved one was my time and #wisdom. Rather than getting upset with me, they actually took me up on the offer and we sat for hours discussing the root of their financial challenge until we came up with solutions that help solve them and become more financially empowered.
I love @KellyCorrigans book "Tell Me More" because it reminds us that when we have the courage to have those hard conversations it creates possibility for love to grow and flourish. According to Chapter 3, she learned that lesson beautifully too! Because sometimes saying, “NO" makes room for YES!
