Lessons from a Recovering Doormat

I’ve encouraged you to say “no” many times yet I know how hard it is to begin to do that. Saying “no” to what you don’t want is a great act of self-love. The more you love yourself, the more you’ll try to say “no.” It’s a wonderful synergy once you get started. The more you treat yourself kindly, the more you’ll want kindness and feel good about it.

I interviewed author Cheryl Richardson about her book The Art of Extreme Self-Care, almost 3 years ago. The principles still apply to everyone. I remember seeing her on Good Morning America around that time, talking about how hard it is to say “no” and why it’s a crucial part of good self-care. Here’s a video of that appearance:
