From my Sponsoer Bob on our "coaching" call last night, this sage advice:
Say what you mean—
without being mean.
Odd as this (& that) may seem, whenever I would speak-up for my self in the past there was often (most always) an edge on it. The anger & resentment of NOT being willing to ask for / say what "I" wanted would color what I said and how I said it. That's the "mean" part.
There's not only more peace
