Interpersonal Effectiveness: FAST

In the same way that it is important to respect other’s emotions, values, and beliefs, it is important to respect our own. We may find that in relationships, we sacrifice our own needs or betray our values to avoid conflict or get approval.

The acronym F.A.S.T. can be used to increase self-respect.
