How do you stop helping an overly-demanding person?

Sometimes you agree to help someone and they begin to take advantage of it by having you continue on longer than you were supposed to, or for less pay than they originally stated would be given, or they seem to always be pressing for you to give more of yourself than originally agreed upon. How can we still reflect Christ while backing away from helping when the time/money/energy involved is starting to negatively affect other areas of our lives? And when we do step away (in as Christ honoring way as we can) what should we do if the person is upset, angry, or disappointed? How should we deal with the guilt of not helping the person even though we really can’t and know it is healthier not to?
