As moms, the word ‘yes’ is often difficult to say. ‘No’ is such an easier go-to word.
Because of time, mess, and my often waning patience, it’s just. so. much. easier. to. say. NO.
I want to be a ‘yes’ mom. I’m quite a work in progress when it comes to it, though. Change doesn’t come easy..because after all…I have a few control issues.
It is often hard for me to say ‘yes’ to my boy’s requests because it interferes with my plans, my expectations, or my peace and quiet.
But I’m trying.
Each time I say ‘yes’ to one of their requests that I would’ve said ‘no’ to in the past, I get a little bit closer to being a ‘yes’ mom. And that’s something to be proud of!
Do you struggle with wanting to be a ‘yes’ mom but ‘no’ comes all too easy?
Why do you say ‘no’ most often?
