Learn To Say “No”
Many people who are often taken for granted are unable to say no to others. This is usually because they’re afraid they may sound arrogant or rude when they say no.
However, what you may or may not know is that others will only take you for granted if you allow them.
Therefore, you have to put your fears aside, and learn to say no when it’s necessary– however hard it seems.
Expect others to use emotional blackmail against you, by telling you how selfish and mean you’ve become.
The aim of such talk is to manipulate you to give into their selfish demands, but don’t fall for it. After all, there’s nothing wrong with putting your own needs ahead of others.
