Hey, did you know?...
"Learn by teaching", they say, and
What is Assertiveness?

"The world would be a better place if people were more assertive."
Who said that?... I did.
You'll also find resources/links below that can help you with the 'how?'... (Oh and do get involved, eh, tell us what you think!)
What the Self Help Collective says...
Well, this is what you'll find on the Self Help Collective website - assertive wisdom of many, all carefully selected and commented on by me:
Assertive behavior - What I say...
I say "No" to passive aggressiveness (and plain ol' aggressiveness) and "Yes" to...
And this is not easy for me to say - clearly! - because, for the most of my life anyway, I have not been assured, emphatic or decisive enough, with myself or with others. And guess what suffers because of this 'lack' - interpersonal relations (relationships with your siblings, intimate relationships, friendships, work-relations) communication skills (how the world sees and hears you) and much more, that's what?
It's not something to put a smile on anyone's face!
But smiling's good for ya so what the hey! :-)
And so is learning how to be assertive.
So in one regard I am highly qualified to talk about this - the problems that occur with a lack of being 'certain' enough - but in another regard, I am not (i.e. do I really know how to develop assertiveness?). I am very much a work in progress, like you probably, so I am very much interested in what you have to say too...

Or you can just tell us what being assertive means to you.
Either way, please share your views with the rest of us! Thanks.
