|It's ok to use the N word|
No, that dreaded N word.
The word some people need to use more.
When we use discernment (wisdom) regarding when to say no, things will be ok and the world won't end. But if we're not careful, some people will try to use us up if we allow them, because some people want us to be their enabler, their sob story go-to person, or their down-and-out buddy. Yet we have to empower them to take control of their lives so they will be stronger and more focused. If we don't learn to do that, we face the prospect of being drained and this may lead to resenting others.
