    I am not sure that is what you are trying to say. In any case, that one is not an English sentence. :?
    Although you're not sure what I was trying to say, in your words, you catch on the meaning what I was trying to say. :? :P :wink:

    May the most important thing to catch on what I said is to be smart. :wink: :?

    I modify it again.
    Don’t Hesitate to Say “No”
    When someone asks us for help, under what situation we should say “No”? I think to make such a decision depends on the situation. If by helping someone you do harm to someone else you should not hesitate to say “No”.
    Why are there always someone who won’t say no when they should? In my opinion, there’re two situations. First, people who hesitate to say “No” may afraid of the relationship between he and his friend who asked for help will be harmed. Second, there’s a sort of man who was accustomed to help no matter who asks for help. This sort of man hasn’t his own idea all along.
    Both the situation are deleterious. In the first situation, perhaps you will lose a friend by turning him down when he asks for help, but maybe such a friend is not worth having. And in the second, he should train to make decisions himself. Otherwise, though he seems to helped many people but few appreciate him heartly.

    • When someone asks us for help, under what circumstances should we say “No”?


    When you use it as a question it's "Should we?" When you use it as a statement (either an admonition or a suggestion) it's "We should". (Say: under what circumstances or in what situation.)

    • I think the decision depends on the situation.


    Or:


    • I think that what you decide to do depends on the situation.


    Or:

    • I think that what you decide to do has to depend on the situation.


    If by helping someone you do harm to someone else you should not hesitate to say “No”.
    That is good. :D

    Why are there always someone who won’t say no when they should?
    Say is instead of are.

    In my opinion, there’re two situations.
    I think you mean there are two possibilities.

    First, people who hesitate to say “No” may afraid of the relationship between he and his friend who asked for help will be harmed.
    You have to change something there to have agreement in number. Perhaps:

    • First, the person who hesitates to say "No" might do so because he is afraid the relationship between him and his friend might be damaged.


    Or, perhaps more to the point:

    • First, the person who hesitates to say "No" might do so because he is afraid of losing a friend.

    Second, there’s a sort of man who was accustomed to help no matter who asks for help.
    I don't think a sort of man works very well there. Perhaps:

    • Some people are used to helping others no matter who asks them for help.


    This sort of man hasn’t his own idea all along.
    I think you mean that he is not very independent or that he doesn't know how to think for himself.

    Both the situation are deleterious.
    When you use both you have to use a plural noun. Also, deleterious always goes with to. If something is deleterious it is deleterious to something. Perhaps:

    • Both situations are bad.


    Or:

    • Both situations are unhealthy.


    In the first situation, perhaps you will lose a friend by turning him down when he asks for help, but maybe such a friend is not worth having.
    Excellent! :D

    And in the second, he should train to make decisions himself.
    You need to say something like he needs to get used to making his own decisions.

    Otherwise, though he seems to helped many people but few appreciate him heartly.
    You need to say something like he might have helped many people, but they don't appreciate what he has done for them.
