They prefer the “old” you



 

“If you’ve been taking care of other people & saying yes all your life, you may encounter some angry resistance when you start to say no. People may say you were nicer before. They may say you’re being selfish, that they prefer the “old” you. On the other hand, you might find that your honesty & clarity is respected by friends who are glad that you are finally taking care of yourself.” ~Ellen Bass & Laura Davis, The Courage to Heal
