I contradict myself πŸ€«

Cognitive dissonance – The term cognitive dissonance is used to describe the mental discomfort that results from holding two conflicting beliefs, values, or attitudes Reference

I started thinking about this term because of a video that I watched back in March about how musicians contradict themselves in their song πŸ˜…:

“A question is just an opportunity to be honest” –Byron Katie

I started wondering why it is so hard for me to say “NO”. Sometimes, I say it but I feel guilty afterwards, like wrong and I was wondering why it is so hard inside my mind to be honest. So I started researching on google and I found this article:

25 Ways to Say No by Kim A. Flodin

I liked it, I think that is a good introduction to the main question: “Why is it so hard to say “No”?” but for me it wasn’t completely clear, so I continued with my research and as always I decided to look for Byron Katie’s experience and I found this video:
