Saying “Yes” when you should say “No”

Do you have a hard time saying “no” to people?

Some people naturally have a really difficult time turning down other people’s requests.

Usually, they are highly empathetic and thus feel negative emotion in others more acutely. They don’t want to experience this negative emotion, so they’re incentivized to just say “yes” to things they don’t want to do.
