This is me telling you that it is okay to say no.
I know for some people saying "no" is not easy.
But I want you to know that it is okay to use your voice.
It’s okay to tell the football quarterback that you don’t want to hook up with him because you aren’t ready to go past first base.
It’s okay to say no to going to parties, say no to a drink and if you are offered drugs you can say no. Because peer pressure is a bitch.
It’s okay to say no to trying CBD or smoking weed because somebody suggested trying it to calm your mental health disorder. It’s not for everyone.
It’s okay to say no to that person who thrives off of doing yoga when it helps them. You have your own method to practice breathing.
It’s okay to say no to that guy that you met at the gym, but you heard that he’s a jerk and treats girls like trash. Those types of guys belong in the garbage.
It’s okay to say no to someone who wants to go somewhere new on an adventure that you don’t feel comfortable going to.
It’s okay to say no when you are in a situation you feel uncomfortable in.
It’s okay to tell the guy at the bar that you just met no that you aren’t going home with him for a one night stand.
It’s okay for you to say no to sending a dirty picture to that guy you thought was into you, but only wanted nudes from you.
It’s okay to say no to a toxic person and cut them out of your life for the better.
It’s okay to say no to a guy. No one gets to touch you without your consent and you don’t owe anyone your consent.
It’s okay to say no to sex.
It’s okay to say no to absolutely anything you feel uncomfortable with.
It’s okay to say no to going out with girlfriends because you don’t feel like your mental health can handle another night at the club/bar.
You are not a bad person because you say “no.”
You have the right to say what you want to say.
It’s okay to say no.
No means no.
This is 2020.
Use your voice.
