Just give them your genuine reason, now don't say if or but. If you can't do anything than you can't & that's okay. People who love will understand that.

4. Don’t be afraid

Mostly, we get afraid especially if it's our family or friends that they'll become angry or we might hurt them. But don't forget yourself in that process, don't hurt yourself. They will also not like that you hurt yourself for making them happy. Just say no politely & tell them your reason. People who really love you & care for you, they will definitely understand you. And don't be afraid of anyone for anything.

I read somewhere about Empathy Sandwich for saying no. Through this way, you will not hurt the other person and still say no.

Empathy Sandwich = Empathize + Decline + Emphasize again.

Simply, Tell them you can understand their situation but you can't help them.

7. Be true to yourself 

Be Yourself and don't do what you don't want to do. Be straightforward but not rude.

Keep everything simple. Say Yes when you want to say Yes, Say No when you want to say No.
