A good way of saying no and not hurt anyone’s feeling is by using the Sandwich Method when delivering frankness:
You can start by saying something nice – “It is so kind of you to ask about me, I appreciate your concern”
Second step is to be frank – “I’m actually really private about these things, and don’t want to talk about it now.”
Last step is to reinforce your goodwill – “You’re a great friend. thank you for checking up on me.
