A "No" uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a "Yes" merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if our yesses and nos were honored?
Wouldn't it be wonderful if when someone said "yes" you could really believe that they meant it from the bottom of their heart?
Same with "no."
The ability to agree ("yes") or disagree ("no") defines us. That same ability grants us power--personal power...the ability to control our own lives.
Wouldn't that be wonderful?
