  1. I must confess that sometimes when I do say no, I struggle to justify that choice. Much of this struggle is internal, going over and over the situation in my mind and my reasons for declining. Yesterday, I was asked if I could help out at work on Saturday.

If your reasons are sound, do you still obsess about the decision?
