“imperative for students” by Julia on her couch

I don’t know if I had ever heard the word no until now.
Not in my own voice. Not in my own guts. It felt like a weight was lifted off of me. I didn’t want what yes felt like anymore. I didn’t want yes at all.
I think how nice it would have been to have had been taught how to use it then. How i’m so sorry i’m running a bit late say no then. How to hear it. How to stand by it. I wish there were some lessons on how to survive saying no. On how to survive the fear of saying no. On how to survive.
Better late than never I do imagine.
All good things take time.
All thoughts eventually become practice. All practice becomes practiced.
