Day 126 (A Hundred & Twenty-Six) of 365 days

Speak up. Speak clearly. Speak slowly. Speaking up can not only help you but also help others. There are different types of situations in which you have to speak up. Whether you are going through something that makes you feel broken and alone, you have a valid reason to open up and express how you feel.

Get help, don’t keep it to yourself. Understandably, a lot of people are afraid of what people will think or afraid of what someone will do if they found out that you are telling someone. But how are you going to fix a problem if you are not talking about it?

Never hush your voice for someone’s comfort. We all need to have the courage to speak up for ourselves and the people around us without being afraid. If someone is hurting you, let them know. If you don’t speak up when someone insults or maltreats you, you’re non verbally giving that person permission to continue to treat you the same way.

The strongest force we all have to change the world is speaking up for ourselves and the voiceless. When you speak up, do it with an intention, not for attention. Remember that no one has your perspective, and speaking up can change someone’s entire life.
