Hey, did you know?...
"Learn by teaching", they say, and
Assertiveness Techniques That Work!
Learn to put yourself first!
That's what I say, anyway when it comes to techniques in developing assertive behavior. And I should know, I've spent most of my life believing that the needs of others were more important than my own.
And if you have your own tips, please feel free to share...
What I say...
Everything self-help begins with awareness, and that includes assertiveness. So make sure you know just where you stand in terms of your assertive behavior with others. Awareness is the most important step, I believe, then followed by the kinds of awareness actions that Larina Kase suggests.
Understand this, as you try to get a measure of where you are: you have rights - the rights to your own beliefs/opinions/emotions; the right to not have to justify your actions to others; the right to make mistakes; the right to tell others how you expect to be treated.
That's according to website 2knowmyself.com, and I agree.
Just as I agree that others have those rights too!
Okay, over to Larina Kase who talks about assertiveness techniques that you can use in the workplace, but they can also be used at home, with friends etc.

What these inspirational quotes say...
time we speak, we choose and use one of four basic communication styles: assertive,
aggressive, passive and passive-aggressive."
"Never allow a person to tell you no who
is not what you do, it's who you are!"
Yes, that will do nicely! I really like what Eleanor Roosevelt says, actually. She also said this, too, which is somewhat appropriate when it comes to assertiveness:
one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
