Lately my friends and religious leaders have been pressuring me to do stuff that I wouldn’t say is fun in the slightest.
I would just say no but I can’t I’m way to “nice” of a person to say that, and it bothers me that I’m getting so many requests and assignments, my life feels heavy on my shoulders.
My friends say things to my religious leaders to volunteer me to do something and then the “spotlight” is pointed towards me, so if I say no I look heartless, and if I say yes I’m doing something that nobody else wants to do (including me).
What do I do? I can try avoiding my religion, but I’ll look like I’m inactive or need conversion.
I feel stuck and taken advantage of.
