How do you confront someone who knowingly uses you everyday? I don't want to start WW3 or anything, I'm just sick of her handing me all her responsibilities everyday. I'm not a very confrontational person either, so saying anything will be hard for me to do.

  • without knowing details, all I can say in general is to make yourself less available for her.

    You could always make yourself appear less reliable, as well and not have the time to get her stuff done or do it half-asses, then she'd stop seeking your assistance.

  • Just start saying, "Sorry, I'm busy today." Say it every day and she'll get the hint.

  • Just start of by letting her know you're not available. After a few times she'll hopefully get the hint.
    Just say "No". I know it's not always easy to say that, but for your sake you need to.
