How do you nicely say no to a best friend without hurting their feelings?

My best friend is always asking me to do things with her that I don't want to do, its not anything bad. I know that if I tell her I just don't want to go do it that it'll make her mad and feel bad. What can I tell her that won't make her mad or hurt her feelings?

If shes asking you to do things that you dont want to do just maybe mention something that you both might like. If shes your best friend she shoul understand.

Say, "no thanks, sorry" or "sorry, but I'm not interested" if they are a true friend they will understand

It sounds mean but they will respect you for saying so!

I try to be forward and honest with people bc when you aren't people take advantage. Just tell her you don't want to and why.
