Just two letters, one word. Simple, small and so frightening for so many.
Avoiding the use this little word has brought more problems, misunderstandings, sadness and regrets than you can imagine.
Maybe we feel guilty when we say it? Maybe we feel we are being rude to the other person? Maybe we feel obliged to avoid it? Who knows but despite its size and simplicity, it is one of the hardest words to say for many people around the world.
Maybe we were educated to see that little word as “harsh”? Are we afraid to offend the other party? Disappoint them?

It is difficult when one always hears no, instead of yes.

I can say no after so man-years. In my childhood, I had friends who profited from me but now, I can say no to people without feeling guilty. When I am in my right, I say :no!
Hi judeledawieh. I am sure many problems in the world and personal lives would have different outcomes if this word had been acted upon! So nice to meet you. Thank you for wanting to follow my poetry adventures. Besides writing and observing life. Love anything paranormal. Also so kind for liking my poems Crash! Flying Creatures! and Parallel! Peace and Best Wishes. The Foureyed Poet.
I do agree with you but infortunately it’s not always the case. The word is difficult and strong. You are welcome I surely enjoyed your posts. Also, thank you for stopping by as well.
