Mindtool.com goes on to share that assertive people do not promote bullying tactics, are fair and proceed forward with empathy.
This website offers tips in becoming assertive with a foundation of valuing oneself:
    "Understand that your rights, thoughts, feelings, needs and desires are just as important as everyone else's.
    But remember they are not more important than anyone else's, either.
    Recognize your rights and protect them.
    Believe you deserve to be treated with respect and dignity at all times.
Stop apologizing for everything."

Assertiveness to me is really just a softened aggressive nature broken down by the compassion for the wellbeing of others, it is wrapped in heart. I live my life assertively, how about you?
