Being assertive isn’t the easiest thing to do. When you are so used to agreeing to what everyone says and doing what other people tell you to do, you’ll have to work on changing the way you think before you can stand up for yourself.
Changing your mindset, however, doesn’t happen overnight. It’s something you have to work on slowly and steadily. It can take weeks, months or even years but as long as you’re committed to making positive changes, you’ll make that happen.
