Assertiveness Anger, helplessness, and confusion that we all face while handling certain situations. Most of the time ends up making us annoyed as we are unable to communicate our feeling to the other end properly. We usually have no answer to this and things keep on going the same way. However, the reality is totally different as to where there is a will there is a way and hence there exist the answers to such situations. The need is to make some appropriate changes accordingly in your life. Changing oneself is no doubt a tough job but it’s not impossible and hence asks for developing a skill called assertiveness. Assertiveness in simple words is an alternative to personal powerlessness and manipulation. It asks for self-confidence as well as respect for others. The person who acts non-assertively usually responds after the opportunity has passed while the aggressive response usually results in generating a negative impression that leads to regret later on. Assertiveness not only helps in handling issues amicably but also helps in addressing the physical issues resulting from that like anxiety, depression, fatigue, headaches, and many more.

In a nutshell,

“Assertiveness is the courage to be ourselves and show the world our likes and dislikes, our thoughts, feelings, and shortcomings. It’s about communicating honestly with family, friends and colleagues. As we become more assertive, we drop the mask and show our true selves. We proclaim: This is who I am, this is what I feel, and these are my needs – Anonymous”
