“No” doesn’t mean never. It doesn’t mean maybe. It doesn’t mean I hate you. It doesn’t mean I like you. It doesn’t mean I’m better than you. It doesn’t mean I’m not good enough. It doesn’t mean I know better than you.
“No” means not right now. “No” means no until further notice. It means I’m standing in my own worth. It means I respect you enough to give you a straight answer. It means I respect myself enough to give a straight answer. It means I know what I want. It means I know what I don’t want.
No is not a no to you but a yes to me.
