Assertiveness in essence relates to the ability to stand up for oneself and to put one’s point across confidently in any relevant situation. It is a character trait within the makeup of an individual that enables them to communicate their respective point of view and hold their authority. In reality, many people feel unable to make themselves heard and allow circumstances and stronger individuals to take advantage of them causing the non assertive individual to feel negative emotions and lack of self belief There can be many reasons why an individual is not assertive.
This can be due to factors such as low self-esteem or self-worth or simply shyness in that they are not willing to express their true feelings when needed. The inability to assert oneself is a common issue and impacts both on work and the personal lives of someone with this problem. Fortunately, overcoming fear of being assertive can be dealt with effectively with the help of hypnotherapy.
