Japanese Technique To Reduce Stress

 

“Being assertive does not mean attacking or ignoring others feelings. It means that you are willing to hold up for yourself fairly-without attacking others.” by Albert Ellis, Michael Abrams, Lidia Dengelegi.  It always surprises me when I see one explaining themselves so others understand but the other may feel that this is combative behavior.  Food for thought: Perhaps, they are trying to explain an apparent misconception
 on what was said.  What do you think?
