Stop Packing Your Bags for the Guilt Trip

Here is the hard fact. No one can take you on a guilt trip unless you are packed and ready to go.  You have to agree to take on their issue and be part of the solution. 

You have the ability and the right to give a polite “no” to any situation. Don’t make it personal and don’t take it personally. It does not even require a reason. Here are some possible responses. 

  1. “I understand you are looking for help. I am not available to be that person.”

  2. “I am sure you have the skills and contacts to get it resolved. I am not the person who can help you.”

  3. “Sounds like you have some challenges. I am sure you will learn much by working them out.”

  4. “Yes, we are friends and I am a busy friend. You can do this.”

  5. “I know that sharing concerns can be helpful. I was happy to listen today. I know you can make good choices.”
