Question by Susan F: How to be more assertive in life?
I have a huge problem being assertive and sticking up for myself. I wanted to know if anyone had any advice on how to stop being such a pushover. I let my friends be catty to me and make me feel bad constantly, I am getting taken advantage of at work, and in my relationship I let my boyfriend cancel plans and ditch me all the time. I am sick of being a doormat but am always trying to please everyone and have no problems with anyone.

I think i need to improve in that too. You just have to put your foot down. Don’t let them intimidate you.

Just be straight with people. The majority of people who are passive or passive aggressive want to be liked by others and they fear that people will either reject them or dislike them if they don’t say yes etc. It’s hard to be assertive at times especially when you seek peace and harmony amongst others. However, when your direct and straight forward people tend not to take advantage of you and you can be assertive but still be a good person to others. Also I will tell you no matter how you act people are still going to talk about you or find something they don’t like about you. Don’t be a pushover, stand your ground and be firm but don’t feel guilty about being this way. You must do what’s best for you not others because people will still like you regardless.
