Just Say No

Ask Chandara No.10

By Chandara Tep, Reporter

This week an anonymous reader has asked, “how do I to say no to a Formal proposal?”  The answer is quite simple actually, just say no. When asked out to events such as Formal or Prom many people are afraid to say no.  The person being asked is usually afraid of embarrassing the proposer, as many Formal and Prom proposals are in-front of many other people.  Although it may hurt the proposer a bit it is important to stay true to yourself. If you go to an event that you have no desire to go to, you’re probably not going to have a good time.  If you’re not going to have a good time you may give an annoyed and bored vibe and this attitude will be detrimental to the other person’s experience.   If you don’t want to go you shouldn’t go.  If you do end up saying yes to the proposal you are lying to the person and to yourself.  For the price of your time, comfort, and possibly some money, you may make your proposer happy.  You are doing something nice for another individual.  It’s a trade off that you may not like, but if kindness is a part of your character, maybe saying “yes” is the best option for you. You are not obligated to fulfill anyone else’s wishes but your own.  Instead do what you want, binge watch a Netflix series, eat ice cream late at night, or text your ex. Actually, you probably shouldn’t do that last thing, but you get what I’m saying: find your own type of happiness.
