How to say no, Part 2: Changing your mind and maybe

How to say no, Part 2: Changing your mind and maybe

How many times have you changed your mind? Perhaps you didn’t desire someone at first and you later found yourself wanting them. You said you were attracted to them, you acted like you were attracted and then suddenly something switched and you felt differently. Why is that? As a general rule, men love to please women. How then do you reject a man in a way that is healthy for both sexes? Delivery and tone is everything. If feeling safe is a concern, tune in to learn how sugar coating, ignoring and making excuses can only makes it worse for you and other women in your tribe.


Additional topics covered:


– How to reign it in slightly when something is too much for your partner

– What to do when they change their mind from a yes to a no, or a no to a yes

– How to navigate your own energy and desires when this kind of confusion sets in


It is EXTREMELY important to honor someone’s boundaries and meet them where they are. Closeness DOES NOT ENCOURAGE pushing past anyone’s no. We DO, however, encourage gentle communication, questions, and authentic discussion on the subject so that we can understand each other and move closer to love.
