three line tales week 43: person holding up leaf

Pretending to examine a fallen leaf she hid from view, as her colleagues up ahead disappeared inside the cafe.

It was the weekend and she simply felt like going home and curling up in front of the fire with a good book.

She still hadn’t mastered the art of saying no.

    Ha! Love that. So often I’d like to curl up with a book and am expected to fit in with other people’s plans instead – so hard to say no when you’ve been brought up to be amenable! Great take on the prompt too

      Thank you! Just so relatable! Yes..somehow it feels so awkward voicing yourself assertively in certain situations…but for some people it’s just no big deal!

      • Lynn Love says:

        Always jealous of those who find these things easy – they seem to get what they want much more easily than those of us who are not assertive. I hope I’m getting better at this as I get older – though maybe I’m just fooling myself 🙂

        At times one does feel that way..but along with making an effort to change, I also try to make peace with the way I am! It’s nice to have us softies in the midst of all the intimidating ones! 😀

      • Lynn Love says:

        Good attitude to have – it’s good to accept your own personality as well as trying to improve it. Nothing wrong with being quieter after all 🙂
