Assertiveness is speaking one’s truth with peaceful confidence. Assertiveness comes from knowing our own worth, and honoring the dignity of who we are. We have the courage to speak up for what we believe is right. We treat ourselves and others with respect and expect respect at all times.
We never beg or make demands. We know what we stand for and what we won’t stand for. We ask for what we need by making simple, positive requests and set boundaries without guilt. Sometimes we need to stop and ask ourselves how are we practicing Assertiveness as a virtue?
