How do you say "No" to a friend without offending them?
Sometimes, we wanted to say NO to friend's request, but how can we say it without offending them?
A person you cannot say "no" to ... is not a friend ... just an acquaintance.
Shahid said it best.
Those who mind don't matter, those who matter, don't mind.
Just tell the truth. An example while looking straight into the persons eyes you might say "I don't mean to offend you, but I can't not let you borrow money." Keep eye contact with them, do not put your head down or dart your eyes. Stick to your ground, and if they are good friend they will respect your boundaries.
We can just tell them that we really understand.But we are not in the position to accept what they say.And we can be a little polite by saying "I'm sorry I don't think I can help you" with a smile.
