A Relationship Tip From Dr. Wexler
In your relationships, it’s important to communicate directly and assertively.
Be assertive. Don’t be aggressive. Don’t be passive.
Aggressive: “We are going to that party! It is very important for my career, so we have to go.”
Passive: “There is a party this weekend and you might like it. I think some people you like will be there.”
Assertive: “I would really like to go to this party this weekend. It would mean a lot to me if you went as well. I would appreciate it if we could go together.”
