When you feel relaxed, comfortable, and stress free. These are positive signs that you are being assertive.

When the person with whom you are interacting displays attentiveness, comfort, cooperation, and respect. When you see no signals of bad feelings, rebellion, disregard, or defensiveness, you are being assertive.

When another says, “okay,” “sure,” or “I’ll be glad to” in response to your request or directive. When others do what you want with no indication of resentment or discomfort, you have good evidence you were assertive.

When others are assertive with you. When they communicate their honest thoughts, feelings, opinions, wants, and needs in a direct and respectful manner, they are affirming your assertive behavior with them.
