What is Assertiveness?
The Concise Oxford Dictionary defines assertiveness as:
“Forthright, positive, insistence on the recognition of one's rights”
In other words:
Assertiveness means standing up for your personal rights - expressing thoughts, feelings, and beliefs in direct, honest, and appropriate ways. It is important to note also that: By being assertive we should always respect the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs of other people.
Assertiveness is a critical life skill but sadly not taught in schools or taught by the parents to their children. Assertiveness is strongly related to self-esteem, self-worth, and personality. The best part of it is Assertiveness can be mastered by children and adults alike which will make a radical positive change in their life.
