This is most difficult thing, still you must say no when you want to say it. It will always good for keeping long term relationship going rather than short terms gains.
This is always difficult but crucial when dealing with children. You must be able to say no to young people or there will be terrible consequences down the road.
People think this is really hard to do - but with a little practice and preparation on what you want to say and how you will react if they insist, then it's not that difficult. But it also depends on what they are asking? In general always be polite and never get angry. It's helpful - if you have the time - to rehearse what you want to say. Also in saying 'no' to someone you need to remember a couple of things. Firstly, you have as much right to say 'no' as they have for asking. Secondly, when it's a case of declining an invitation, remember it's the invitation you're rejecting not the person.
When saying 'no' have a legitimate reason for this. Don't make something up just because you think it sounds more reasonable - chances are it isn't and little white lies have a nasty habit of back-firing.
Um no. Or better still... no. Rather it's a no. If that doesn't work try saying no.
I have always had a problem with saying no, but things have changed significantly in the last couple of years. It is important to be realistic, and saying no is sometimes the most realistic thing you can do. Therefore, just practice and you'll get there!
Keep it real
I'm with IE, it's as simple as saying no. If it helps, add an heck in front of it, to give the no more volume.
Um... Just be honest. If you can't follow through, don't commit. Remember that you are the most important person in your life. It makes saying "no" very easy.
Graciously to those you care about and directly, but tactfully to those you don't.
