Hey George, awesome article :) It’s such a tough skill to learn isn’t it?
I used to have trouble being assertive. I hated speaking up, having attention directed toward me. I realize that was because of low self esteem.
I’m better with offering opinions now, being honest yet considering others while doing that. However, it can be tough to receive compliments still ;) That’s partly as Aussie thing too, we Aussies don’t take compliments that well do we?
Cheers for detailed and simple ways to take and give feedback. So much gold in here about how we can have healthier relationships with ourselves and others by being assertive.
Love it and great stuff! Have a fab day George :)
