That means brave enough to stop pleasing people, to be disliked, to sometimes rub others up the wrong way. In many environments, all you have to do to be castigated as an angry woman is to say something out loud, so you might as well say exactly what’s bothering you and get on with it. This means that, usually, you have to come to terms with not always being liked. Your anger and assertiveness will make some people unhappy, uncomfortable, sensitive, or cautious. Acknowledge that’s fine.
