Now that the social festivities have started the pressure we feel is starting to bite. Someone needs you to run an errand for them, the shopping for the Christmas feasting needs doing, the gift buying needs completing, nativities and concerts are being hosted at schools, and despite all of this busy someone still expects something from you that you feel pressurised into saying yes to.
Just remember, you don’t have to say yes. It’s quite acceptable to say no, you are not a bad person just because you have refused a request. As long as it isn’t an emergency then there is no reason why someone else can’t help out. It doesn’t have to be you. Saying no does not equal being mean.
