How assertive are you?

Do you have hard times saying no to others request? Is it difficult to express your feelings directly? 

Honestly, I do feel it sometimes; I have hard times expressing clearly my thoughts, what I want or what I need. I know it’s not good to be so submissive, your feelings are ignored and others took advantage of you. I have hard times also being assertive or just being too pushy about my own ideas and opinions cause I don’t want to hurt others’ feelings.  

Is being so non-assertive erroneous? I asked myself. Maybe I should be on the 50/50 part, well it answers my question. I took the How assertive are you test in Below is the result:
Being non-assertive is not that really bad though, it was like you're just being nice - haha! But I realized that you don't have to go on pretending that everything is okay when it's not. Being assertive is just being honest in a such a way that you have no intentions to hurt others' feelings. If you're clear to what you want or what you need, I'm sure others will respect it

To know what you prefer, instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you, you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive. Robert Louis Stevenson
