No Means No ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ

Stop giving promotions to people who don't want the job. You know what I mean...that friend or loved one who doesn't want a more significant role in your life, no matter how much you think they'd be a great fit. Stop trying to convince them, stop waiting for them to come around, and stop giving them opportunities they don't want. Accept that their 'no' - whether spoken or unspoken - means just that. No. Save your energy and emotions for those who want to show up and be present in your life. Remember, you can't force someone to want what they don't. #selfcare #dating #mentalhealth #psychology #advice

I want to add, don't hold that "job promotion" in case they change their mind someday, it's a huge effort just to maintain such offer...thus diminishing other's chances to "apply" (edited)

I'm going to be somewhat of a decenting opinion here, yes move on with your life. Take that no and find someone who will say yes. Don't try to push or force feelings on someone that does not want them. However, do not expect me to put the same level of time or commitment into our friendship. I will not be up at 3am any longer waiting for you to reply. I won't sit there for hours on end about how you really wish you could find someone better. I'm not going to take time out of my day to go shopping with you for half a day because you wanted to. Yes no means no but, that means that I need to find someone who is going to actually want more from me than just friendship and if your not ok with that, then whatever we had is over.

If someone is holding a "promotion" for you be sure to not use a soft "no". Avoid terms like "for now", or anything else that leads to the thought of a possible future together. If you want to remain friends, or don't want to remain friends state that clearly or you will lead someone on who is holding that "promotion" for you. Too many times I've been on the hook of someone who "just wanted to be nice". Spare them, and yourself the pain, and time by using absolutes when turning them down.

I agree with you, but to continue the analogy, if they won't take the position that you need them In, it may be necessary to fire them

Sounds like good advice for both parties. No one wins in a situation when your expectations don't meet reality.

Interesting perspective, relationship as analogous with a job, in which love, time and commitment is the reward.

Yes. Power. Tell Them! If Anyone is unaware - it's wartime all the time. Do not trip out here, People - there are grown folks here who moderate. Learn This: It's not about You, It's not about Me, It's a "We" Thing. It's the 21st Century - Welcome. Excellent.
