Don’t let anyone drown out your voice

I know it can be easy to allow our voices to go unheard. Maybe others speaker louder, are more vocal. We get shy or worry that  other’s won’t understand our thoughts and ideas. I want to encourage you to use your voice. When you see injustice in the world, speak up. When you see someone being bullied or ridiculed, use your voice. When you bear witness to inequality in the world, be it in media, news, work, or somewhere else, speak up.

We all possess power. We can use our voices to inspire change in our society.

“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” -Malala Yousafzai

Be a force in the world. Inspire change.

  1. This provoked a couple thoughts from me. A really interesting woman once told me, that our society is stifled by an over abundance of apathy. She insinuated that people just don’t care enough to change things. I found that to be such a gross inaccuracy from the world I see. I feel like there’s so many caring people. They are kind, gentle, and sometimes passive for the sake of no confrontation. I think our culture discourages confrontation, over all because of a perception of what confrontation means. It’s not always violent, sometimes it’s just disconsonance. We don’t have to all agree, it’s wonderful that we don’t. I think we all need to be less passive about sharing our views, we need to be more accepting of other views, and together collectively we can find a solution. Sometimes I feel like there’s so many brilliant people afraid to speak, then there’s so many people who are quick to speak, quick to defense and miss the concept that in order to work with someone with different views you have to say your opinion in a manner that the other party can hear it. That got tangential. Thought provoking post, I like it.

    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts hon!! I agree that we all need to be respectful when voicing our views. I feel like it can be difficult sometimes (strong views=strong emotions) but if we can all be more respectful with our views then maybe we can find common ground.

      Anywho, love you lady!
