Yesterday I got into an argument with my friend (a Sag, btw), and he rolled his eyes and walked away. I confronted him soon after and he was like, “You’re so pushy, man. Chill out!”
Hmm, that did not feel good. But he was right, I was imposing my unfair expectations onto him. I did some soul searching and realized how I often cross the line from assertive to pushy.
It’s OK to... suggest kindly.
It’s too pushy to... insist rudely.
It’s OK to... ask and listen.
It’s too pushy to... tell and tune out.
It’s OK to... take the lead.
It’s too pushy... sabotage others’ efforts.
