Assertive vs. aggressive 

There is a difference between aggressive and assertive. Assertive is speaking or acting in a way that is respectful of yourself as well as others. It is expressing your boundaries or needs. Aggressive is intentionally confrontational and attacking. It is another way to get your needs met but is done so at the expense of others. Choose to be firm, direct and thoughtful of others. It’s worth the effort.
