Avoiding Mormon Burnout by Saying No

Avoiding Mormon Burnout by Saying No

One of our core values as Latter-day Saints is honesty (the 13th article of faith begins, “We believe in being honest,” right?). We know that it’s dishonest to lie, steal, and cheat, but have you ever considered that it might also be dishonest to say “yes” when you really mean “no”? For example, if someone asks you if you’d be willing to do something and you say yes when truthfully you are not willing to do so, you are being dishonest. It’s so tricky—we want to please, and we want to help; we want to do our share, and we want to do what’s right.

I know that there have been times when I really wish I felt free to say “no” (and feel at peace about it), but I found myself saying “yes” yet again. Unsurprisingly, this pattern of repeatedly saying “yes” can cause problems in one’s emotional wellness, communication, and even in relationships. I do not intend to suggest that we stop going out of our way to serve others, or to always say “no,” but I think it’s important to examine why always saying “yes” can be harmful, and to look at why it’s okay, even honorable, to sometimes say “no.”

Needy Or Not? Julie Hanks on Jerry Doyle Show

[powerpress]
There’s something exciting about doing something for the first time, and luckily I had another “first” yesterday. I was interviewed on The Jerry Doyle Show on The Talk Radio Network (the 6th largest syndicated talk radio show) We chatted about a topic I commented on earlier this week The Wall Street Journal – neediness in relationships. Jerry referenced Tuesday’s article “I’m OK. You’re Needy” by Bonds columnist Elizabeth Bernstein.

We also touched on the importance of self-care and stress and Jerry mentioned my forthcoming book “The Burnout Cure”. While this was my first interview with Jerry but I hope it won’t be my last! Jerry recently launched a new website Epic Times “Conservative News You Can Use” and I’ve been invited to be a featured contributor.

Burnout Cure Audiobook on CD Now Available for Pre-order

Last month I posted on Facebook that I was “auditioning” to read my book  The Burnout Cure audiobook on CD. A lot of people made funny comments about having to audition for my own book. Since I’ve never been a reader for an audiobook before, I actually wanted to audition to make sure I could do a good job and that my speaking voice would translate well when recorded. Luckily, I passed the audition and spent hours and hours recording the audiobook.
