Best of Our Blogs: May 17, 2019

How do you end something that’s not serving you? It’s one thing to get rid of a toxic relationship or the unhealthy workplace. But how do you let go of the good things in your life?

Maybe you don’t have the bandwidth for that new opportunity or relationship. Saying, “No,” seems terrifying because you don’t want to miss something special.

Then again, if saying, “Yes,” to others means saying, “No,” to yourself, you’ll be missing out on something greater than opportunity. You will be neglecting and betraying yourself.
