Learning to say No and not being a doormat
I am way too nice for my own good. I have no clue how to tell people no and realize that unless I do something to correct that I'm just gonna crash in the worst way possible.
How can I do this without the least bit of guilt? Cause right now any time I tell people no I feel extremely guilty for not helping them.
The downside is it's a Wednesday so that means I'm gonna be working on my birthday.

I really hate people who downvote things because it "just works for them" like sorry I'm not like you and I have edge cases and problems that aren't a simple "I hit on and it works" or "reset to default" kind of thing.
They act like because you're case is unique somehow you have a less valid reason for "wasting support's time" like go to hell. I'm trying to troubleshoot a problem with what is essentially a black box to me. Take your negative comments and get out.
I've been playing a lot of SAR (Super Animal Royale). Some of you may have seen me around in game.
Assuming all goes smoothly today, I'll be on after work around 5:00 EST.
This is the only battle royale game I've actually played. My college roommate used to play Fortnite and PUBG and when I watched him play it made me realize I didn't want to be part of it but SAR I can get behind.
some facts about putting pronouns in profiles (247 words)
- Some people put pronouns in their profiles.
- Some people get misgendered a lot when they don't put pronouns in their profile, and put pronouns in their profile so they get misgendered less.
- Some of those aforementioned people are trans people.
- Bigots like to pick out things that the subjects of their bigotry do as "weird" to justify their harassment and abuse.
- When cis members of a community put pronouns in their profiles, harassment for listing pronouns becomes less. Anti-trans bigots are more hesitant to do it because doing so feels less socially acceptable; pro-trans people are emboldened to speak out against any such harassment that does occur. Further, trans people feel safer putting pronouns in their profiles.
- Not every cis person is comfortable or safe putting pronouns in their profile. (Not every 'cis' person is cis.) For that matter, not every /trans/ person is comfortable or safe putting pronouns in their profile. For some people, it's a no-brainer to include them or not; for other people, it's a hard choice, and they're the only ones who can make that choice.
- We talk about putting pronouns in profiles because we want people who've never thought about it to realize that it's possible. We can't make a choice for them, but they can't make the choice if they don't know there's one to be made, or what they're choosing between ... so we talk about it.
