Thursday, February 20th, 2014 Focus: I am learning to assert myself in a clear non-threatening manner.

It goes to eleven
Asserting yourself in a clear non-threatening manner may not come as naturally to you as it does to others. First, figure out specifically what’s true for you about the situation you’re stuck in, then express your truth kindly, and finally, listen with openness to the recipient’s response.

I know, I know. You’re saying it’s not that simple to do, especially when emotions are maxed out, the topic is super-sensitive, and you’re strung out beyond belief.

It may take practice, just like any new skills does. But over time, you’ll be able to quickly identify what you really want to say and sound casual and non-confrontational when you say it. Your words may sound stilted to you at first, but you’ll still find the benefits far outweigh any temporary discomfort.
