I stand up for myself in all circumstances.
Although there are many people who stand up for me, I am my main advocate. I treat myself with respect because I am worth fighting for.
Each time I stand up for myself, it becomes a little bit easier. By being assertive, I am able to build meaningful relationships.
As I meet life's challenges, I speak up for my rights and for the rights of others. I know that the best way to deal with conflict is a head-on approach. I make certain that others are aware of my boundaries. Even though I speak up, I lead a peaceful life.
The more assertive I am, the more others respect me. Because I speak calmly with others, my assertiveness is rarely confused with aggressiveness. My confident tone reflects that I am a strong, self-assured individual.
