Why we should speak out

A passing thought:

It’s always tempting to complain about someone or something without doing something about it. If someone hurts you, or says something unkind, it’s important to speak out.

As hard as it is to do, it’s even harder to keep our thoughts to ourselves. All that does is hurt us emotionally until such a time we don’t cope and then have to deal with the problem anyway. It may not meet with the other person’s approval, but we’ll soon begin to feel better about speaking our own truth.

If the other person doesn’t like what we say, perhaps their comment shouldn’t have been aired in the first place.
