Saying No

Saying no has never been easy for me. While I have a hard time asking someone else for something, I have internalized that being asked is a gift that means the asker believes I can do what is asked. So I almost always say yes.

Except when someone asks me for money. I have internalized that question as evidence that the asker is greedy and deserves nothing from me.

Except when I know the person really doesn’t have anywhere else to turn for that help. And that brings me right back to why it isn’t easy for me to say no.

How about you? Do you find it easy to say no?
