Anxiety about work

I work a job in fast casual food. I get called in all of the time as that's the way these types of jobs work. I'm totally fine working my schedule but when I get called into work, I have a ton of anxiety. Like what do I say? I am not very good at saying no, so I end up usually going in or making up some excuse as to why I can't come in. Either way I just never say no. It makes me feel horrible to say no to someone so I usually just go into work. Now I feel like I'm treated as the call in guy who they always call because they know I'll most likely say yes. Recently I asked the manager to just give me more hours so I have less chance of being called in since I'll already be at work more often. I just cannot believe how much anxiety it gives me to be called into work. I hate it.

you have anxiety because you are not honoring your feelings. your are not protecting your feelings. just say no and when they ask why not just say: because i dont FEEL like it.

tell the truth! to them and to yourself. let your feelings guide you in life.

your feelings wont be important to them if they are not even important to you

Unfortunately they look down upon the people who always say no. I do need to be better about saying no though because everyone else seems to have no issue with it except me. Even my manager has commented on my inability to say no to things.

I’m a people pleaser for sure. I also think my time in the military made me used to saying yes all of the time because I really never had a choice.

you’re totally right though, I need to start honoring my feelings more.
