Find your­self a no-non­sense role model

First For Women - - Insight -

“Ask your­self, Who are the peo­ple in my life that I know get treated the way I’d like to be treated?” sug­gests Des­mond. Per­haps there’s a co­worker who never seems to be tar­geted by the of­fice bully, or a neigh­bor who al­ways seems to re­ceive let­ters of per­mis­sion rather than de­nial from the home­own­ers as­so­ci­a­tion. “Think about the kind of re­la­tion­ships this per­son has and rec­og­nize that it’s pos­si­ble for you to be treated that way too,” Des­mond as­serts. You may no­tice that your col­league never apol­o­gizes when voic­ing her opin­ions, and the guy next door might refuse to back down un­til his needs get met. Us­ing their habits as in­spi­ra­tion, you can hone your as­sertive­ness and re­claim your self-worth.
