How you can be more assertive?

Be honest. State your beliefs, boundaries in a calm, firm way. Don’t whine, complain, yell or pout. Just be extremely clear. Now that’s empowering.

Don’t argue. It’s not necessary. If you think it is, then you are speaking to the wrong person. Leave.

Don’t call names, be rude or disrespectful, even if they are. How yourself accountable to healthy behavior. If their behavior isn’t, then again, why are you in a relationship with this person?

If they argue, listen (if they are polite and respectful). You can say “I understand you have a different point of view. I have a point of view as well and I’d like you to hear it too.”

Choices. Know you have them or you will believe you are stuck. You are not stuck. You just think you are.

It’s Boundary month!  If you don’t know what your boundaries are, then how do you know when someone has crossed them?  How do you Begin to enforce your boundaries when no one knows what your boundaries are?  And why should they respect your boundaries when you clearly don’t or you keep moving the boundary line constantly?
