Carmen had also found it hard to say no to anything. She was a pleaser and wanted to make everyone happy. This though made her drained.
Today, she had decided she’d had enough and she was going to deny all requests.
The word ‘No’ felt alien in her mouth and she struggled to battle with it.
At the end of the day, she had achieved lots more then normal but she didn’t feel any good about it.
