Many individuals who attempt to be type have hassle with assertiveness. Eknath Easwaran talks about it in his e-book Passage Meditation: we may be calm and attempt to perceive the wants and perspective of others, however as he places it, that doesn’t imply “being a doormat”. This is usually a delicate steadiness. So I used to be glad to see a whole e-book dedicated to reaching this steadiness. The creator, Sherrie Mansfield Vavrichek, is properly certified to put in writing on this subject as a result of she is a cognitive behavioral therapist who can be well-versed in Buddhist philosophy, mindfulness, and meditation. I extremely suggest this e-book.
