I have to admit this is hard for me, to actually look someone in the face, or tell them directly ‘no’.
I’ve always got to try to find some way around it, I’ll think about it, maybe later, ask me closer to that day, whatever. I really need to learn to just say “I’m sorry but no”.
Would make things easier when I don’t have to use the same tired excuses for things. I tend to think people might be slightly insulted when I do that to them as well. :(
