You have the right…

I warn you, dear readers, that this is not a post about legal advice or legal tricks.

We are strong, determined and if need be, we can even move mountains… But still…

I think we all have experienced a situation in which we felt uncomfortable and lacked the courage or confidence to protect our rights and beliefs.


Assertiveness is key in good communication

First of all, learn to listen to your own needs, assess possibilities and have the courage to care for them. It is just as important in this art of being assertive to respect your interlocutors and their beliefs.

You have the right:

  • to express your own thoughts and opinions
  • to refuse and not apologize
  • to make mistakes
  • not to know something
  • to expect and to ask
  • to take care of your happiness


Take care of yourself and your well-being

You can express your opinions and emotions without having to come into conflict.  

I should have said that!

You don’t agree with something but you don’t want to offend your interlocutor?

You lack the courage to refuse?

Why is it worth the risk?

  • You will improve relationships with others
  • You will improve communication
  • You will find it easier to overcome your emotions and reactions
  • You will find psychological comfort
  • You will strengthen your self-confidence and self-esteem
  • You will be able to manage your stress


It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I want to encourage you to start training… your assertiveness

  • Make the right decisions
  • Learn to show your feelings
  • Give constructive criticism
  • Pay well-deserved compliments
  • Think positive

And the last and most important tip… Whatever you do, just be at peace with yourself and don’t hurt anyone <3
