Why do some people find it difficult to say no?

Some people find it difficult to say no. They might be invited to engage in something they know is bad for them either morally or spiritually but they do not know how to say no. Eventually they regret saying yes later. Some on the other hand when invited to parties, events, gatherings etc do no say no but end up cancelling it at the last minute. Which in itself is not good. Is it fear that causes this? Are there other factors? On the other hand I say no all the time if something doesn't fit my agenda so it doesn't apply to me.

The only thing that I found difficult to say no was when people need my help. But over the years, I've learned to say no because they seemed to have depended on me too much. But when it comes to parties, gatherings, etc, I always know how to find a good alibi. I'm not someone who can be easily influenced by parties and such.

I am an introvert, so I say no to gatherings a lot. I normally feel bad and feel like I disappointed the host. When I say yes, it means like I just said screw it, and finally decided to do something reckless because of the thrill and fun. I feel like that is how most people are. We don't plan to have a bad night, just crazy and fun..
