6 - You Can Learn to Say No

Session 6

In session five, Dr. Cloud talked all about connections and why having good connections has a positive affect on our lives. In session six, Dr. Townsend teaches us about boundaries and learning how to say no with confidence. 


For most of us, saying “no” as a child was not an option for us, since we had to do exactly as our parents said. As adults, we’ve allowed that belief to linger and affect our lives in negative ways. No matter what our current situations are, we need to guard our lives and hearts by learning to say no. Fear, discouragement, and toxicity have no place in our lies, and we won’t succeed or reach our goals if we don’t set healthy boundaries and see the word “no” as a positive word.
