    When I say no for something.

    When I say no for something, I find myself doing it in the near future either by will or by compulsion.

    Please check.

    I don't understand what you mean. Can you explain it in another way?

    By the way, we say "yes/no" to something, not for something.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Most of the times in our life we decide not to do something being unaware of what is going to happen in the near future. Sometimes such situation is built, in which you nilly willy do that thing that you thought you would not. Like when I was a kid I used to think I would not go to any hospital in my entire life. But I didn't know I would contract this disease in future and I would have to go to hospital every month.

    Re: When I say no for something.

    But you didn't "say no" to going to hospital. You simply assumed that you would never need to and, unfortunately, that assumption has been proved wrong. If you "decided not to go to hospital", that would suggest that there was a need to go to hospital, but you decided against it. There are things you might decide that you will never do (for example, get married, have children, take a job with an unethical company) but with things like going to hospital, you can't really decide in advance that it will never happen.

    Sometimes, things I thought would never happen, happen.
