Star letter


I enjoyed the article ‘The joy of saying no’ (April). I feel that sometimes we are so intent on trying to keep up with the world, we lose sight of ourselves and how solitude can transform our lives and lower stress levels. At first, I found it difficult to say no to people, whether it was doing extra work or agreeing to meet up for drinks. I felt I was letting people down, or I was missing out on things that would make me stand out as different. However, once I started to politely refuse invitations, I began to feel more in control of my own life. I looked forward to being with family or going to bed early with a book. I started to sleep better and I realised the world happily went on without me. I hope this article helps others to find the courage to say no, so they too can reap the benefits of feeling in control of their lives. Joanne
