It is such a liberating feeling to stand up to someone in your life that is trying to take advantage of you and others. I have told someone “no” to a request that was selfish and disregarded everybody else’s situation and feelings. The person was shocked as they are used to getting their way and they are sulking. But you have to be authentic and do what is right for you and for others and at times this can mean momentarily upsetting someone.
