The opportunities are abundant when you stop allowing fear to get the better of you. You might make a new friend, a new career connection or get a date!How can we get over these situations to stop the intimidation?To tackle this problem, you need to understand why it is a problem in the first place.One secret to gaining confidence with aggressive people is to understand that often the aggression comes from that person feeling insecure.
Do they treat you like a child, or constantly try to put you in your place?
Any of these situations can seem intimidating, and no sane person seeks out intimidation.
Have you ever wondered what gives that scary person the emotional leverage to manipulate your feelings?
Because we all feel insecure at time, we often sympathize with someone who expresses his insecurity, especially if he seems weak, passive, or frightened.
When we encounter someone who is aggressive and controlling, we don't always recognize him as being insecure because he does not fit the profile; he isn't what we expect." -Carolyn N.
Change the way you represent the experience so that it no longer makes you feel fearful.
