What if that day I uttered the word “NO”? “NO” such a simple word but difficult to utter for the most uncomplicated question in the most common situation. May be today my life would have been different if “no” was my answer. A “no” could change my life, save my life or even can worsen my life. Anything and everything depends on this “no”. But alas! I was afraid to utter it. I was worried or rather intimidated with the repercussions of “no”. I wondered what it will bring to me. How will it change me? It may bring negative connotations or it may add positive outlook to life. I could not articulate my true inner self. I wanted to do justice with my inner notion and was eagerly waiting to let out my honest answer. But paucity of my courage held me back and locked my true inner voice.

From today when I look back to that day I think how a small word with negativity can be so powerful. Even sometimes the negativity of answers may give you some positive light. And bit by bit I learned this as I unfolded different chapters of life.

And yes today I am proud of myself as I understood the importance of saying “no”. I even learned to enunciate “NO” for the simplest questions.
