Learning to Say No and Setting Boundaries

Growing up and even in my young adulthood I have always had a hard time saying no. Whether it be plans I am not interested in, or a favor for someone that I truthfully did not have time for.  I often find myself stressing out over obligations I make without thinking about the things I need to do for myself before saying yes.  Sometimes I will work 12 hour days because I cannot say no, even though I have obligations…
