It’s hard to say no, because basically, we all want people to like us. But the people who really take advantage of…the ones who manipulate really well, use that, and they tend to prey on the nice, kind hearted people who really want to help. But you have to say no. Otherwise you will begin to feel like a door mat. And yo don’t have to lie! Just be vague. And always very “busy.” Whatever it takes not to give in to these people. They aren’t your friends. They are just users.
