A statement such as this one lets the other person know you identify with his or her needs as well as your own.

Express your concern if you are afraid that by asserting yourself, you will offend or alienate the other person. Let the person know that you're not used to asserting yourself. Such a statement lets the other person know you're not intentionally trying to be difficult or demeaning. It also provides a safety valve in case you do unintentionally go too far because you're not used to asserting yourself.

Consider asking for constructive criticism about how you are asserting yourself. Perhaps the other person's point of view can help you assert yourself more constructively the next time.
