“In relationships, unless everyone is winning, no one is winning. If your connection is faltering, don’t linger in dissatisfaction. Either change the relationship or change your mind. You can usually find a way to upgrade the situation (or your attitude toward it) so everyone is taken care of. Often you can make changes within the situation, and sometimes you must move on. You can communicate anything, including leaving a job, relationship, or living situation, with love, appreciation, and respect…If you offer someone sincerity and respect, you are protecting them in ways far deeper than avoiding saying no.
Rejection is protection. An honest no is as much a gift as an honest yes. It serves and blesses both giver and receiver. Behind every no is a yes. When you can find the yes, you will have the key to a win for everyone.”
Alan Cohen, in “Why Your Life Sucks…And What You Can Do About It”
