As introverts, we are not an "in your face" type of group. But that doesn't mean that we don't have wants and needs that we desire to get across.
Being subtly bold means to give just the right amount of boldness to any given situation to get our needs met and our boundaries respected. Here are a few, quick tips to help you out with this.
1. Know What You Want
How can you get what you want if you don't know exactly what that is? Sounds simple enough but sometimes we only have a vague idea of what we want. So get specific about it.
Having to live and interact sometimes with other humans means there will be times when decisions must be made. Taking the time to look at all of the factors involved and being as informed as possible is a key to figuring out what we want so that we can make the best decisions for ourselves.
2. Take a Deep Breath
Inhale for a 4-count, hold for a 4-count, exhale for a 4-count. Our breath reconnects us to our being when we're feeling a bit anxious. Anxiety is the enemy of saying how we feel when we need to speak up for ourselves.
