    Just About Everyday.

    I am always saying yes when I want to say NO NO NO!  It's a problem I have.  I don't know how to hurt people's feelings. Like, NO!  I don't want to add more songs to your God forsaken MP3 player mother!  I am exhausted and want to go to bed!  I...

    I Say Yes...

    ...because I hate conflict. I'm generally a quiet, easy-going, mind-my-own-business kinda person, so when someone asks me to do something, I say yes cuz I don't want to argue with them or explain why I don't want to do it or whatever. It seems so much easier to say yes even...

    Me = Doormat

    Doormat. That would be the perfect title for me. I can never say no to a friend no matter how badly I may want to. I feel it is my duty as someone who cares for them to do what they ask of me. I never ask for anything in return.. maybe I should start.

    I'm just a huge pushover,

    but it used to be worse. At least now I can say no to most things, but before I was a constant yes woman.

    I am such a people pleaser.

    When I do say no on the phone, text, or in person, I would feel extremely guilty and make it such a big deal and apologize. I would explain to them why. Others would tell me just to say "no" bc it's that simple. Not for me though.. :( I care what others think too much. Ahh

    Why do I feel guilty

    if i say no? Even to something that has no benefit what so ever to me and will inconvenience me significantly.

    I try to say yes to a lot of stuff.

    .. Unless it's bad like smoking and stuff... On days I can't be stuffed doing anything... I take the opportunity to go to the gym! I just think if we don't say yes to most things, you aren't living.

    I always had a hard time saying NO to anyone.  YES seems so much easier.  I basically always said YES because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.  I somewhat changed, I sometimes manage to say NO, it all depends on the situation.  The way I now look...
