ST. PAUL, Minn. – Saying no can be very tricky.

Many of us feel like we have to say yes to everything to avoid upsetting other people or missing out on something.

An article in this month’s issue of “Experience Life Magazine” called “The Freedom of No” is hoping to give us guidance on saying no, so we can create space in our lives for what we love.

KARE 11’s Bryan Piatt sat down with Experience Life Editor-in-Chief Jamie Martin to talk about the article.

“A lot of us say yes all the time because we want to be accepted, we don’t want to disappoint anybody,” Martin says. “But when we say no we’re actually freeing ourselves up to do the things we really want to do in our lives.”
