E-Book – How Can I Stand Up for Myself?


Each and every day teens are faced with situations in which they either hide away from the confrontation or they stand up and express their views without disrespecting other people. Standing up for yourself is a crucial life skill to learn. Being unassertive, and a people pleaser, can end up with them being used and manipulated. It is important to remind teens that standing up for themselves can be really challenging if they are used to letting others have their way or if they are a people pleaser. Many teens worry how others will view them when they say no. They do not want to be viewed as lazy, uncaring, selfish or narcissistic. They do not want to be disliked and cut from friends and family members.

Can I Disagree Without Being Disagreeable?


Disagreements are inevitable, normal, and healthy events in one’s relationship with other people. People disagree with one another at home, in school, at work, while volunteering, and in personal relationships. There is no such thing as a life of agreeing with everything others say or do. This can be a challenge for people who find it difficult to be assertive (open, honest, and direct without being angry or aggressive). Disagreeing can risk disapproval from others. If one is drawn into a disagreement, one needs to know how to disagree without being disagreeable.
