This is one of the more important things I’ve learned throughout my life.
I don’t want to do something: I just don’t fucking do it.
I don’t fall for peer pressure. I don’t succumb to the whims of others. I just say “No thank you.” (It’s still important to be polite.) I don’t need to justify why I don’t want to do something, I just say no. It’s fucking brilliant. And somehow I feel less guilty then when I would make up an excuse.
