To speak up is to bring yourself nearer to your truth.
You know that poking, annoying little itch you get somewhere around your gut when someone says or does something you're not really ok with and you really want to raise against, but you don't?
That itch is your superpower telling you to act. To speak up. That's self preservation pounding at your door. Do, not, suppress it.
Because when you do act on it, when you open that door, you grow. Immensely.
It's an act of truthfulness, even in the smallest of situations.
Promise me that the next time you feel the urge to speak up, you will.
Expressing yourself verbally in a mindful, confident way is an amazing defence, but also a great tool for your soul work. Because the more you learn how to use it properly, the less you have to.
I don't know anyone who verbally could walk over me. I know I could freaking crumble anyone to pieces who even tried. Just by using words, along with love.
I very, very seldom have to, though.
It's one of the greatest things I ever learned, and it evolves more and more as I go along. It's awesome.
So practice. Daily.
Oh, and any obscene "jokes" you might have in store for this post... yeah.
Go ahead, honey. Try. And may god have mercy on your soul.
