Do you have a hard time saying, "No"?

For whatever?! Are you a doormat?! People just walk all over you... I have always been that way, too nice and too weak. Just lately I have gotten stronger I guess. I bitched someone out and made her cry last semester. Hehe! But I still need to be more aggressive. I mean, I am sick of people using me to do the most trivial crap for them.

I'm a young girl, an old WTAWorld member.

no, not in the least. but there is room between "doormat" and "bitch"... I don't think I've ever made anyone cry (at least not as an adult). but if someone asks me for something that I think is too much I have no problem saying no.

It's too soon to aim for peace. Aim for better conflict management.

no. I am very strong-minded in that departement. when I serious don't want something then I don't do it.
it's the only thing about myself wich I am proud off

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

It used to be like that for me. But, things changed after I nearly got fired from my job for allowing too many kids to see "18A" and "R" rated movies at my job.... the kids used to take advantage of that, they'd ALWAYS line up at my till, cuz they knew i'd let them in. After that, it kind of changed, and I can now say the word "no" because I have a reason to.

Sometimes. I am quite moody, so sometimes I have a hard time saying "No", and sometimes a hard time saying "Yes"..

No

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

Saying no doesn't mean you can't be nice. And nope, I have no problem saying No.

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Be kind.
Always.

Yes I can't seem to say 'no' to anyone. Once it's in my ability to give (oh I recall at least three times when it wasn't) I do it anyway. Well this was about a yr and a half ago.

But I'm learning to say it and sometimes it feels so darn good cause ppl can't seem to resist to the urge to take advantage of u. Hmmph!

I'm so happy because today I found my friends, inside my head.

I'm so ugly but thats ok 'cause so are you.

I am a sufficiently accomplished Legilimens to know when I am being lied to

Shania and Serena! My two fav babes! You gals rock. Keep it coming!! Get well Serena honey!

Yes, basically I'm the same as what Fiona says and I'm definitely a doormat.
