But it's as much for you as for them. Much of handling intimidating people thus lies in stopping that comparison, or in reassuring ourselves we've got plenty of points to fight with. Talk firmly from the heart. When I was done with my session, a guy came up to me and told me that he had been watching me the last couple of weeks and had noticed a change in me. If you can be assertive in these smaller situations, you'll reassure yourself you can stand up for yourself.

Picture the intimidating person dancing in a tutu, lounging in their undies with some chips or belting Adele's greatest hits during their commute. You might have some personal work to do as much as the person who intimidates you does.

But I knew once I hit my first weight loss plateau that I was going to have to begin a workout regime. Plan out what you want to say. No one is born knowing how to do the gym correctly. The feeling of intimidation can make you mentally choke, leaving you at a loss for words that makes you feel even worse. If you really get to know them, they might be much warmer than you initially give them credit for.

You can put an end to it starting today, and you don't need to sacrifice your pride or decorum to do it. Tell yourself that, for all the other person's accomplishments or abilities, they're human. Small gestures or a kind word as you speak can be incredibly disarming and serve to build a better long-term relationship.

At the same time, firmness within truthful I statements tells the intimidating person that you have strength of your own. Stay relaxed, make good eye contact and smile. Maybe the person at the drive-thru didn't put the extra pickles on your sandwich. The exact picture really doesn't matter. The positive memories can decrease your stress.
