If you are anything like me, then you are always the first person to offer help to someone in need. The thing is, though, there is a big difference between offering your support on your own and feeling like you need to say yes to someone that you don’t actually feel good about. Doing a favor is one of the most rewarding and natural things in the world, but only when it feels right. Here are five times when you should say no when someone asks you for a favor.
1. Change of Plans
If doing the favor requires you to change plans of your own, then you haven’t got your self-care priorities straight. Obviously, a really serious emergency might be different, but if the favor is just a generic task, then there is no reason that you should be limiting your own life and choices to fulfil the wishes of another person.
