Assertiveness: we’re taught to say “yes” because of cultural reasons, gender, religion, fear of rejection. Assertiveness is saying “no” consciously – we can’t do everything to everybody! Are you assertive?
Being assertive: neither passive, nor aggressive. Passive people seldom say No. They’re taken advantage of, know that and can’t voice it, leading to health problems. Aggressive ones: bossy, pushy, need to “win”. Tell your thoughts and they’ll endlessly argue till you say “you’re right”, to be free.
Few are assertive. Unfortunately I’m passive. Examples: 1) D.L. shop (we all know) asked posts for freebies I don’t need. My intuition: No! But I said yes and got nothing! 2) E.D. shop asked a post – later sent me awful emails for weeks. I wanted to share it, for honesty and keeping my good name.
Use the picture below to find out if you are assertive or not!

Outfit: I ordered the skirt from Choies. It didn’t fit and they refunded me, but told me to keep it. My seamstress put the black hem. This isn’t sponsored! They were really great! So there are nice shops!
