Becoming More Assertive
« on: February 12, 2019, 05:22:00 AM »
I was raised to keep my thoughts, opinions, wants, and feelings to myself, and I have been very passive in my marriage with my husband. Our couples therapist is encouraging me to become more assertive and to express myself more, but it is so foreign and difficult for me.

For instance, this past Sunday, I really wanted to spend the afternoon with my husband, but he was really into watching his sports. I sat with him for a little while, but I eventually just went and did my own thing.

I know I just need to take the baby steps and start expressing myself, but wow, it is a challenge! Does anyone have any tips for taking the plunge and becoming more assertive?

I am curious what your husband's opinion was when the couples therapist suggested you be more assertive.  I guess he was open to it since he was there?  Then it would make it a mite easier to say something like " I would really like to (fill in the blank) today..  how's that sound to you?" 
That would not work with my husband..  but I'm thinking if yours went to the couples therapist with you he may be more open?
