Kali Rogers lists the 9 attributes of Confident Women. My favorite is #2, and hard won. Learning to say ‘no’ in a charity driven community.
2. They say no.Now, some people may think this practice is betchy the PC version of b*tchy, but in reality, it’s pretty respectful. Confident women don’t overcommit and they don’t make false promises. They just say no. Why? Because they’d rather state the truth and decline rather than tell a white lie and then flake out later. And, they don’t have time for everything. No one does. The difference is, burnout simply isn’t on a confident woman’s agenda, so she makes sure to commit to things she’ll actually enjoy instead of piling every little thing onto her calendar for the sake of other people. Truth bomb.FYI: Confident women do RSVP, because, well, not doing so would actually be betchy.
