Do you think saying No to something that makes you uncomfortable means you're not a kind person?

Do you think saying No to something that makes you uncomfortable means you're not a kind person?
I think it makes you a wise person. If something feels wrong my motto is always say No. I think we all have a small amount of instinct left.
I never allow anyone to manipulate me. I am kind and empathic but I am not naive, trusting or ignorant.
Learning to say, No is how we survive.

No.

I look at it this way... there are many more followers than there are leaders, and because those that desire power over others seek leadership positions, there are more leaders that shouldn't be leaders than should. So, there are a lot of opportunities and logical reasons to say no.
As for users, whether I know they're a user from the start or not, I usually give them the same courtesy of 2 or 3 requests (depending on what those requests are , of course) before I start in with the nos.
Sort of complimentary yeses.
If you let yourself become someone's path of least resistance, you're not doing them any favors.
You're encouraging antisocial and self destructive behavior. There are more productive ways to spend your time than doing for those that don't really need your help. That time could be spent doing for those that do need your help.
In a tightly packed society such as ours, it's important to know when you should say no, and when you should say yes, and to accept the fact that you're not always going to be right regarding your assessments.
