How to Speak Up for Yourself!

For some reason being assertive always gets lumped in with being aggressive.. Or being a jerk. But trust me, being assertive is something completely different! Being assertive is when you are able to stand up for yourself (or others in your life) without being aggressive, or being passive and accepting something that’s hurtful or not right for you. And we do all of this calmly with a positive goal in mind.
1. Self talk 2. Boundaries 3. Notice your triggers 4. Write it out and practice
5. Start small 6. Ask questions 7. You can disagree 8. Compromise 9. Toxic people do exist.
