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?
