KC: Even though I have a problem saying “No” to people and I don’t like to lie I acknowledge that maybe, just, maybe I’m blocking abundance from me so I’m not lying to them when I say I don’t have any money.
KC: Even though I’m afraid of saying “no” to people when they ask for money. I honor that tension in me and am open to changing that.
KC: Even though it feels like I’m lying if I don’t lend them money---I acknowledge and honor the difficulty and am open to changing that.

UA: Or, I could say that “I wish I could help you but I just can’t this time”
TH: If they ask I can honestly say I don’t have any extra money to lend

Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth- ahhhh
UE: I don’t have to explain myself---I can have money and not lend it out. It’s my money and I can suggest how they can earn also. I don’t have to buy into their puppy-eye’s game. They are an adult and made their choice.
