  • You stew in silence as your laundry list of resentments grows

Ok, ok, that's great, but why do I need these tools again?

 You don't have to feel this way anymore...

You don't have to feel this way anymore...

> You're tired of letting people walk all over you when you agree to things you really don't want to do.  You do this because you don't want to seem "rude" or "mean" or "selfish."  It's terrifying to speak up for yourself, so... you just don't. 

> You may wait days, weeks, or months to let someone know what's bothering you, or your partner finally pulls it out of you, but you explode, yell, or say things you can never take back.

> The smoke and mirrors game of avoidance is just getting old.  It's tiring to wonder when the subject will come up again, figure out how you're going to dodge it then or (gasp) say something.  

> You want to feel like an adult who knows how to handle things in a mature way.  

 You. Empowered.

You. Empowered.
