assertiveness training

lately i keep encountering situations–at work, at places that are not at work–where people are telling me i need to be more assertive in how i communicate. and this makes me angry because i don’t feel as if i am being listened to or understood by these people. but the only way for me to deal with them is to either ignore them… or I can assert myself in telling them i can assert myself, just fine, thank you. and if they are not pleased with that level of assertiveness, i think that is just their way of telling me they are disappointed i am not somebody else.

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
