How To Assert Yourself

Be Persistent.

Next » « Previous


It is easy to accept a "no" answer. In fact, we may be programmed to accept a no if we grew up with such parental guidance as "Don't make a scene" and "Do anything to keep the peace." However, a "no" clearly doesn't get you what you need.

Keep in mind that there is a difference between being persistent and ignoring reality. If you have a question about where the line is, speak with a family member, friend or professional advisor that you trust. Sometimes even describing the situation out loud provides a different perspective.
