Things to remember when you want to say “no,” assert yourself, and ask for what you want

thelesbianborderline:

  1. If I say “no” to someone and they get angry, this does not mean I should have said “yes.”
  2. Saying “no” does not make me selfish.
  3. Although I want to please the people I care about, I do not have to please them all the time.
  4. It is okay to want or need something from someone else. 
  5. My wants and needs are just as important as those of anyone else.
  6. I have the right to assert myself, even if I may inconvenience others. 

Queerness is essentially about the rejection of a here and now and an insistence on potentiality or concrete possibility for another world.
