How many of you have a hard time saying no to something that you do not want to do?

I am trying to learn to do that now, but, it is still hard for me and I still feel guilty when I do it. I feel the person will be angry at me afterwards. There are times if I am not a mood to say yes then I will gladly say no, but, there are still times it is hard and then I overdo it and get sick more. I am then angry at me.

I have a very hard time saying 'no' to my children. I can say 'no' to anyone else now without feeling guilty about it.

Valerie, is it because it is your children and you would feel guilty afterwards?

@Hannihar That's part of it, but I'm learning to say no to even them.

It depends on who is asking and what is being asked of me!

It honestly depends on who is asking me and for what are they asking. There are many things I prefer not to do, but if I really like the person asking for help, then I may go ahead and help them anyway. There are also many things I will not do, even if it is something someone I really like needs help with, so you never can tell what I may agree to do. I also may become angry at myself after I do something I really dislike doing, too.

DE, it all makes sense. Yes, if someone you respect and want to help you would do for. I understand getting angry at yourself if you do something and did not want to do it.

It can be very difficult to say no but sometimes it is necessary.

Kharla, thank you so much. I love his house. He has his own house. Does he spend lots of time in it or does he prefer the house you live in better?

Sometimes we feel like or we are put on the spot. What do you think about that. Yes or No. Answer me. Are you going to answer this question or not? Sometimes if we do want to say no, the other person will respond with sure I understand and accept our answer and it is not a problem.

Why do you think I will not answer you? Have I not answered you before? Maybe I did not see you answer. Don't judge someone you do not know before you find out what the person has to say. Yes, I agree that people do put people on the spot. I have been pressured many times and I was not happy because I got sick afterwards. I have also done too much and got sick from that. You are right if I say no and person says they understand and they really do not understand and want to make one feel guilty.

I apologize @Hannihar I was trying to be sarcastic (joking about the person that might not accept a no from you) and wasn't trying to judge you. It was my fault and starting now will attempt to change my writing style to something more acceptable. I edited only the last sentence of my original comment. I am so sorry it was not meant to be judgemental. It is okay to say no.

Saying no is an uncomfortable position to be in, but sometimes it has to be said. The only ones that I've never said it to are my family. I'd do anything for them.

There are most of the time I get frustrated from not saying NO but then again it's just me having negative reaction most of the time.

LK, I do understand. I get mad at myself when I give in and do not say no.
