How often do we say YES, although we really want to say NO? And why do we actually do what we don’t really want to? Is it because we want to have peace, we do not want to be annoyed, or we do not have the strength for endless discussions? Because we don’t want to pick a quarrel? Because we are scared of upsetting or losing others?
Even now women are often educated to be inactive and quiet. Therefore, it is no surprise that they do not always say what they are thinking or feeling. But often there is real fear, helplessness or powerlessness at the root of this passivity.
DO YOU KNOW THIS FROM YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE?
_ Do others assume that you will always give in during discussions?
_ Do others still make demands on you, no matter how much you have already given or done for them?
