Do you say yes when you really mean no? Do you avoid conflict at all costs? Are you waiting for someone in your life to change in order to get what you want? If so, youa€™re not alone. Most people will do anything to avoid the unpleasant sensations that accompany having an honest exchange a€“ even if ita€™s as simple as declining an invitation.
