You may have already read in my other posts in this blog that I am not exactly an assertive person. I dislike conflict and confrontation. But that has been something that I have been working on because I do not want to go through life avoiding situations and being unhappy for not speaking up for myself.
Today, I did something that my old me would not have done. I faced a conflict head on and was able to express my dissatisfaction at a company’s lack of service. In fact, not only did I tell the company that I was not happy with their lack of service, I told them that I will discontinue using their services from today. They just said okay, and then I said thanks and that was it! Easy!
After saying that, I felt so empowered. I was so proud of myself for expressing myself in a calm yet still polite manner. This is really big for me! I recognize that if I don’t tell people that I am not happy, they will step all over me because they don’t know where my line is. I have to try to draw that line in every relationship I have.
I gave a pat on the back to myself for a big step towards the right direction 😛 lol
