Becoming Assertive

If you're one of the many who find it difficult to assert themselves the following might be of assistance. Remember, you don't exist on this planet to be someone's doormat.

1. Don't avoid expressing your negative or critical feelings. They are not bad or improper, they are just your feelings and you are entitled to them.

2. Feelings aren't facts. They are just feelings.

3. Use "I" Language to indicate that the feelings you are expressing are yours. You are not accusing or judging anyone.

4. You don't have to justify your feelings, you only need to state them.
