I love Granny’s post about the use and the power of saying “maybe.” Great post and I wanted to share it here.
Everyone knows how to respond with a no. We shake our heads, give a thumbs down, X it out or simply answer “nope”.
But a maybe is sometimes hard to express. We can shrug our shoulders, give a wink, wave our hand back and forth. The word maybe itself is hard to say. We feel compelled to give a yes or no answer, to commit ourselves one way or the other. Being undecided somehow seems wrong or at least very wishy-washy, which gives the connotation of being spineless.
There is, however, nothing wrong with putting off a decision until later. Give yourself a little time to weigh the circumstances and make an informed judgement. Nothing wrong with that at all. The problem is verbalizing it when needed.
