Are you good at saying no?

I have a hard time with it, especially when my family or friends ask me to do something.

I have gotten better at it. I posted on here alot about a friend that took advantage of me alot, so I started telling her no, and its sticking.

 I am much better at it now than I use to be. I think with age comes a certain strength that we dont have when we are younger at least thats how it has worked out for me. There will come a time when your patience runs thin, your body gets tired and your mind, soul and body all need a break!  When this time comes............. Saying no will be easier! :-)

I have gotten much better, but I wish I would have learned sooner because a friend of mine owes me a lot of money and there were many times were I was walked all over when it came to watching people's kids.

I agree with this. I think a big reason has to go with years of so called friends taking advantage of me. It's definitely much easier for me now then it was years ago before I had my kids.

I used to, but more often not, I can say it when I really need to.
