Magic word, No.
As in No thanks, I don’t want to. 
Or No, that’s not good for me.
Solves many problems.
Saves endless energy.
Deflects tons of discomfort and pain.
True, not always easy to say.
Especially if you’ve been denied that right in the past.
Especially if nobody taught you that it is a right.
But that’s what it is.   Everyone has the right to say No.
It’s also a necessity.  Sort of like carrying a gun in a rough part of town.
You don’t have to wave it around or point it at people.  But it’s nice to have on your hip when push comes to shove.
And let’s face it.
There are places and people in your life you shouldn’t visit unarmed.
