The first step to becoming more assertive is to discard your rationalizations that are holding you back. Most non-
assertive people confuse assertiveness with aggressiveness. By definition, assertiveness is socially appropriate, whereas aggressiveness can be offensive and even cruel. Aggressive people may use their personality to intimidate others, or exert an unfair influence. Assertive people say what is on their mind in a socially appropriate way and refuse to allow others to take advantage of them.
