It’s clearly time for you to assess what changes you can make to stop allowing everyone to walk all over you. Of course, if you’re happy with your life, no changes are necessary. But if you’d like to experiment and experience how implementing a more assertive approach could change your life for the better, try making a few changes here and there.
These changes don’t have to be life-altering; start small by adding one new habit a week.
- Practicing saying "no" in a full sentence
- Set small boundaries with family and friends, and keep them
- Speak up for what you truly want
- Put your own needs first for once
- Quit apologizing for every little thing
These small actions can lead to big changes over time. If you would like support in your journey, please consider contacting Dr. Belton to discuss how you can grow a stronger backbone.
There aren’t any point values involved in this assessment and no one will come back to check on whether you’ve made changes; but improving each of these answers toward the YES column will greatly increase your chances of kicking the pushover habit and developing more assertive ways to handle the people and situations in your life.
