I worked with a woman who had extreme difficulty telling people “no.” It put a great deal of strain on every relationship, friends, family, husband and co-workers. Her self-esteem was very low as she frequently did not follow through on her commitments. Her husband felt as though he couldn’t trust her to follow through on anything.
After a few sessions, she re-discovered her strength and integrity. From this moment on, her zest for living burgeoned and she became pro-active in every aspect of her existence. Her energy returned, her self-esteem swelled, her confidence took hold. This inability to say “no” had sapped the joy out of nearly every aspect of her life, and when it was re-claimed, the difference was dramatic and long-lasting.
