Need help with communication, assertion, work...

Anonymous's picture


I ended up buying a lot of stuff that I probably don't even need. Here is my list of issues"

1) learning to communicate with tact, not revealing too much in the work place: being smart about what to say, how to say it, and how much to say.

2) Need to grow powerful, assertive so that I can protect myself and not be taken for granted.

3) I am labeled as too kind and honest at my workplace and people take advantage of that, proving that I am weak and not fit for moving up the ladder.

4) People they chose over me have only seniority levels and yet the people will find ways to sabotage my work and not let me grow.

5) I get de-moralized and influenced by others, they suddenly get the power to make me feel miserable and as a result I go into self-doubt about my capabilities and what is wrong with me.

6) Interestingly, I can fight and speak for others but can't protect/fight for myself.

7) I keep seeking other's approvals, can't recoup from criticism fast enough.

Can you please help?
