Affirmation: Being assertive when necessary brings me peace of mind

When challenges occur, I consider my options. I jot down my possible reactions. Then, I select the choice that is best for me. I take action assertively. I am empowered in my life because I am assertive.

Working with others might foster trials and complex situations, but I know I can handle them. I believe that if I assertively follow through with steps to resolve issues with others, I am doing everything possible to reach an understanding.

While shopping in a store or dining in a restaurant, I sometimes encounter situations that initially vex me. Yet, I know that I can speak up for myself in an appropriate way to bring the challenging situation to a positive conclusion.

I can refrain from expending my energy on worrying because I am assertive when it is necessary.

Each day when I arise, I make a conscious decision to approach the day with assertiveness and strength of character.

Today, I vow to notice how I respond when I want or need something. I commit to getting the results I desire. I recognize that I must be assertive in order to feel calm and settled about any situation.

I enjoy the peace of mind I experience from being assertive.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I avoid being assertive or do I step up and speak my mind?
2. How do I feel when I truly open up and state my wants and needs to others?
3. Is it important for me to have peace of mind after a challenging situation occurs? If so, what can I do to assert myself the next time such a situation arises?

    This is great, Remi! What a refreshing reminder to be true to who we are. There is no need to get burned out and blow up when we remember to be assertive and take care of ourselves as we go along, rather than waiting for things to pile up. Congratulations on a truly insightful post. 🙂
