My boss recently asked me to do something that I'm not comfortable with. I don't want to do it, but I'm not sure what to say. Should I just tell her no?

This is a tough situation to be in, but ultimately you should do what you feel is right. If you don't want to do something that your boss is asking you to do, then you should tell her that. However, you should also be prepared to explain why you're not comfortable with it. If she's reasonable, she should understand and respect your decision. But if she's not, then you might have to decide whether you're willing to do it anyway or if you want to look for another job.
