Don't be afraid to speak your mind. It's important to know how to express yourself. According to Real Simple, here are a few things that every woman should be able to say with confidence:
1. Thank You
It's hard to accept a compliment. However, even if you don't believe that it's true, you should still say, "Thank you." It'll make you look more respectful.
2. The Salary I Want is...
You'll never get the salary you want, unless you ask for it. There's nothing wrong with negotiating. It's part of being a working woman.
Don't feel bad for rejecting a man, or for telling your friend that you can't help her move. It's okay to say no. You can't please everyone.
4. I Feel Beautiful
It's not a crime to be confident. In fact, it's healthy to like what you see when you look in the mirror. If you're feeling good on any particular day, then let the world know!
5. I'm Not Happy
You might not believe it yet, but you deserve to be happy. If your boyfriend treats you badly, don't be afraid to tell him why he's upsetting you. You shouldn't be afraid to tell your boss you're unhappy with your treatment either.
6. I Did This
Don't tell your boss that all of your coworkers did a great job when you were the only one working. It's okay to take responsibility for your company's profits.
7. I Need Help
You're not childish for asking for help. It takes courage to ask for assistance when you need it. It's better than trying to do something on your own and failing miserably.
Can you say all of these things with confidence?
