16 Things People Who Find It Hard To Say “No” Will Relate To

By Haadia Paracha | 12 Feb, 2017

I’ve come to terms with the crazy realization that I will probably never be able to say no to people, especially if they’re super close to me. The pattern continues; with family, at work and with my friends. Hell, I can’t even say no to the salesperson giving me a pair of really crap jeans to try on. I’ll probably never buy them but I sure as hell will add them to the pile of clothes I take to the trying room.

For others like me, here are a few things people who find it hard to say know will TRULY be able to relate to (in no particular order of pain to more pain):
