Saying NO and Assertive Communication
Is it important for you that people like you all the time?
Do you find yourself saying “yes” to people only to regret it almost immediately?
Do you often put others’ needs before your own?
If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, you may need to become better at saying “no”.
Being assertive is about confidently expressing our needs and opinions in a fair, honest and calm way whilst considering the needs and views of other people.
Saying NO is a part of this ability.
