Speaking up for yourself in the face of opposition or uncomfortable situations is often about as fun as elective surgery. While some people seem to thrive on conflict, most people dislike it and treat it as a necessary evil (when they’re not avoiding it altogether).
Using your voice isn’t an easy thing for some people. However, that moment when a shy voice reaches out to fill the silence is a powerful one.
Unfortunately, the people who have the greatest ease in using their voice are too often the ones with their voicebox disconnected from their brains. Don’t let those people define the world we live in. Raise your voice to join the chorus that shapes your world and all of our worlds.
Using your voice takes back your power and gives you some measure of control.
