“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.” –Harvey S. Firestone
Never allow anyone to keep your voice quite. What you feel, what you need to say is important. Now, I will say, there is a difference between the need to speak and the need to speak to hurt others. I say this because I have been in this position. I’ve worked in places where people feel the need to speak to simply patronize and hurt others with their words. Their annoyance, they feel, must be expressed and they must speak in order to diminish the work process or learning process of others. Now this is not necessary nor good. There is a thin line here and bullying others with harsh words is harmful to a persons well-being. Holding someone down to feel superior is harmful and wrong. That simply tells you that they need to make themselves feel good by hurting others. Often times, they don’t feel happy within their own lives and feel the need to hurt others because of their unhappiness. Do not allow someone to put your necessary expressions to be put on hold, but do think about the approach in the deliverance. Your voice is important and it can make a difference.
Have a wonderful day!
