18. Learn to Say 'No'

Most people don't know how to say no. That's the way it is. It's because we all want to help people all the time. But you need to prioritize. Say no if you don't have time to grab coffee, say no if you really can't go out because you have to finish that homework.

If you say yes to everything, people will begin to take advantage of you, and they'll see you as a pushover. And you don't want that. It sucks. You will feel used and abandoned. And that isn't nice.

You don't even have to be blunt when you say no. COMPROMISE! And things will be a lot easier. I promise.

And don't allow people to pressure you into saying yes. Hold your ground. If you're not ready, or if you feel uncomfortable, say so. And don't waver, because the minute you, they'll push you into it.

Once you get the hang of saying no, you won't feel as bad every time you have to say it. It will slip right into your normal way of life. And things will get better.
