being assertive with SAD
I wrote an article for the opening ceremony but my teacher wrote my last name wrong. Now I can't bring myself to tell her that this happened even though it would be nicer if my name was correct.
I'm scared to confront her and I'm scared she'll dislike me.
"Learning to communicate assertively is not selfish, but rather an effective way of negotiating social encounters"
"Assertive communication can also be considered helpful to others, because you are giving clear information about what you need to be satisfied"
Update: I told her about my name after reading some articles about being assertive as someone who has SAD. I feel like it was difficult for me to tell her because I didn't have the tools to do so. After telling her, I feel better.
