The workshops at the In-Domus university residences continue in their program of insights related to the different aspects that allow us to live better.
Assertiveness, for example, is an important feature of human behavior. It consists in the ability to express one’s emotions and opinions clearly and effectively without, however, offending or attacking the interlocutor.
What is assertiveness in practice? It is the ability to say no, and therefore also to say yes, authentically.
Assertiveness has to do with the relationship I have with myself and with the other person, within the boundaries that I know between myself and the other person. It has to do with the ability to expose one’s ideas and pursue one’s needs within the relationship with the other.
An assertive person is not a person who must always have his say in every situation or impose himself on others. Choosing not to have your say in some circumstances also means being assertive; the important thing is that it is a choice.
Cultivating assertiveness is therefore a fundamental ingredient for rewarding and nourishing interpersonal relationships! Keep following our events!
The next workshop at the In-Domus residences will be “Emotions: if you know them, just live them. At their best!”.
