Sometimes it’s extremely hard to say “no”; especially when people are always used to you saying “yes” to all requests. It can even make you feel guilty—which is sometimes what the other person is relying on. However, there comes a time when you have to take that step. It’s better than doing something you really don’t want to do anyway.
Has a family member or friend ever made you feel really bad when you’ve finally said “no” to him/her?
The greatest thing you could ever do for yourself is say "no." Especially to a family member. It is empowering. You will get over the guilt eventually. There really is no choice. I have seen so many people with toxic family members and it does no one any good to avoid dealing with them. Set 'em straight as soon as you can. Say no.
