Assertiveness means being able to stand up for yourself in situations where you feel uncomfortable or under threat in some way. As a person with ASD, a lot of situations make me feel uncomfortable! I haven’t however always been able to be assertive in order to properly manage the situation. Unfortunately I have suffered being around people I didn’t want to be around, doing activities I didn’t want to do, experiencing little ‘internal’ meltdowns as my stress levels built up and having no way to cope until I got home.
