Why is it such a big deal to say, "No!"?

There are many ways of looking at this, with regards to guilt, but here are two. First of all, maybe the person having to say "NO" doesn't want to have to explain themselves. And two, maybe saying "NO" would cause emotional divide so they choose to bottle up the truth.
The big picture of it all comes down to what you want and the values you have in place for your life.
Remember today, that you are the decision-maker of your own present and future. You have been given control over your own choices so make sure to use it wisely. If you have to say "NO" and the person or persons involved, turn away from you, know that they were not meant to be in your life in the first place.
Saying "NO" doesn't mean that you are a bad person. Remember, the people who are able to accept your decision or perspective are respectful of who you are and what matters most to you.
In the end, saying "NO" may be the only best option you have.
