Darcy’s Bill of Assertive Rights: How to Communicate and Get What You Need

Ever have one of those Mondays where everything just sucks? Rather than whine today, I compiled some communication tips about being assertive that I put into practice that might help you, too.

Here’s Darcy’s Bill of Assertive Rights: 

1. You have the right to be more assertive and speak up (without being a jerk).

2. You have the right to find the happy medium between the extremes of being aggressive and being too passive.

3. You have the right to prevent others from taking advantage of you, which only leads to burnout and resentment.

4. You have the right to express yourself professionally and stand up for your point of view, while respecting the rights and beliefs of others.

5. You have the right to know there is nothing intelligent about not standing up for yourself. You have the right to get what you need out of life, so you can give your best to others.

 

I’d love to hear your thoughts. What are your tips for being assertive?

P.S. Thanks for joining me. I’m glad you’re here.

    Thanks for posting. You are absolutely correct about your rights to stand up for your beliefs. Keep persisting. My tip is to also remember to love others and be kind. They do not contradict.
