Give yourself permission to say "no" for your "yes".
What does loyalty mean to you? Have you ever compromised your own values or needs in support of someone else’s values or needs? When we go against the grain and compromise our values, we begin dismissing our own self-worth. So, why do we feel so compelled to be loyal when we know it compromises our own values?
Perhaps we think that we should be loyal to someone because we have known them for a specific amount of time, or have been with a certain agency for a period of years. Regardless of the circumstance, every time we compromise our values or needs, we sink our energy levels a little lower making us feel drained, remorse, and not our authentic selves. How would you feel if you didn’t have compromise your needs or values?
Usually it is a matter of feeling accountable for the needs of others, when really you have no obligation. Saying “no” for the “yes” for you is not a direct reflection of your loyalty, but is a direct reflection of your character; this takes great courage. How true is it that you are accountable for the needs of others?
Whether it is a relationship that has ran its course, or an agency that has over-extended its demands, you have the freedom to choose. Give yourself permission to value your worth, and remain loyal to your values and needs.
Super Awesome Stuff!
