Saying NO Is Not Rude!

Jennifer Partridge


I'm Jennifer

Life coach, EFT / Tapping expert, yogi & wellness activist with a wild heart dedicated to support you in living the life of your dreams.

Just because someone says you should do it, doesn’t mean you have to!

And this relates to all your choices in life,

work, relationships, sexuality, finances, creative expression, everything!

And while I follow this advice most the time

There are occasions when I really need to strengthen my boundaries.

This arises sometimes in my business when everyone has an opinion

of what I should be doing and how it should look…. Ahhhhh!!! Grrrrrrr….

Yes… I can get peeved with all the opinions and positionings

but that’s just a waste of energy..

What lifts me into my power, is simply aligning to my core truth

And if their truth resonates then we move forward,

If it doesn’t, then that’s the time to create a clear boundary and simply say NO.

I think the word NO has a lot of negative stigma put on it,

so much so that we fear saying it, and hearing it from others.

Yet what if we could create a healthy relationship to “no”

Where we applaud and respect others and ourselves for being honest.

When I began my Tapping practice,

I realised that I did not have a strong relationship to saying “no”.

I got to revisit many painful memories where “no” was not even in my vocabulary.

I guess the big one was in the early days of sexual abuse.

The lesson there and in all cases was this;

If you don’t say no when you need to, the situation will keep repeating itself until you do.

And so now if I am challenged with the old habit of people pleasing,

I quickly Tap it out, and then make a choice from my authentic truth.

We have an important role to play in shifting this crazy world back to love,

And it all begins with listening to our internal compass…

Sometimes letting go of others opinions is hard,

because we seek comfort and nourishment from those around us.

Yet, if we take just one moment to release our need for approval,

We may discover something even more nourishing…


I have created this Tapping session for you today, Permission to say NO

I love LOVE love this tap, because not only does it help me gain clarity,

it also supports me in taking care of my own needs.

Thus, feeling super empowered and inspired by life.

If you want to break free from the mold, and trust yourself more fully, give this session a go.

Once you’ve Tapped, come on over to the blog and dive into the discussion. I’d love to know…

What are you now prepared to say NO to and on the flip side, what are you saying YES to— and why?

Wishing you a blessed and empowered week and thank you for including me in your world.

All my love,


Jennifer Partridge
