A Shannon L Alder quote

Something inspirational:

“When you give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation you will have peace despite rejection or disapproval. Putting a voice to your soul helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret.”

  1. I spent most of my life feeling like I didn’t have a voice, so I just suffered and put up with whatever I was given, which was rarely ever what I wanted.

    By the time I found my voice, I had lost so many opportunities to live the life I wanted to live. It almost seems like it’s not worth fighting for to get what I need.

    It seems like the worst people usually have the best things happen to them, while the best people end up having the worst things happen to them, like me.

    I’m trying to get beyond that way of thinking but it definitely hasn’t been easy.

    1. Thanks Randy. Yes, although it may seem like that, it’s not true. Depending on our childhood, we will either be encouraged to find our voice, or we will have to continue to work to find our voice. Please don’t be discouraged.

      Good things do happen to good people and not all good people suffer hardships. Sadly, sometimes good people get caught up in the crossfire of another person’s bad deed.

      We must all work to the universal laws. It’s not for us to question karma, it is for karma to act in accordance with our deeds.

  2. I think we are programmed not to put ourselves first and to feel uncomfortable asking of others. We have to learn to take time to think about ourselves and give ourselves permission to put ourselves first.

    It will be a shock to the recipient no doubt, but I agree an important positive step to our own peace and also growth.

    1. I agree with you. Yes, we have to learn to take time to think about ourselves and give ourselves the permission to put ourselves first, particularly if we’ve never done it and as a result we’ve come to neglect ourselves.

      As you say in your response, it is an important step to our own peace and personal growth.

  3. I put a voice to my soul more so inwardly, before I speak. That’s my soul and universe assessing things, gathering the bigger picture.

    Before I speak my mind and give voice to my soul, I want to make sure it’s worth it.

    1. Thanks Tim. That’s exactly right. If others don’t agree or find what you say offensive because of their interpretation on your words, you know in your heart, you have nothing to reproach yourself about.

      Things have become even more politically correct. We tend to have to watch and think about what we say so as not to offend, more so around family. When you’re speaking the truth, others will run from the truth.

      What that means is they have a problem with themselves, not that you’re not correct with your words.
