I struggled with this as well as I was raised that saying no came with awful consequences. When I finally did say no, it didn’t go over well and I was often verbally attacked and shunned by the family members I had been helping. What did they expect? I was fighting just to pay my own bills. And instead of being understanding, they were nasty about it.
