When last did you speak up for something you believe in? Especially when it strikes a doubt in you?

Do you say no when what you mean to say is yes?

Great leaders are known for their ability to communicate effectively. Speaking up is an ethically important trait.
Whether you are speaking at the workplace, talking to a friend, speaking up for what we believe in is a hurdle to leap, and it is an ethically important trait we all need to possess.

Failing to speak when it is necessary has led to the fall of many great minds.

Too often, we find ourselves wondering “if voicing out our opinion even matters.” It does!
Yet, it’s one thing to communicate, and another thing knowing what to say and when to say it.

We bury our voices out of fear and rejection. We worry more about what others will say and how they will respond to what we say. It’s time we stopped doing that.

Speak up and defend what you believe in. Express your feelings but be polite about it. The more you bury your voice, the more insignificant you become.

Have you been silent for so long?
Do you allow people to walk all over you just because you don’t want to offend them? Your silence when you are supposed to speak up will end up leaving you frustrated and angry.

Speaking up comes with its downside. Yet, it’s more dangerous to bury your voice. Let your voice emerge.

Are you raised in the generation where kids are to be seen and not heard? Guess what? Times have changed, and your voice counts. Every time you speak up, you learn something new and unlearn something you should never have learned in the first place.

So speak up.

Blessings and Love ❤️

3 Thoughts on “Speak Up For What You Believe In”

  • Yes! Great post and I love love that you added to do so politely. We live in a world that’s become inundated with screaming and aggression but that slams the door to communication, hearing and the acceptance of our voice.
    We’ve lost, in part, our skill and knowledge of communication. When we do so, politely and respectfully, we open ears to our voice, hearts to recieve our words….we gather instead of alienate and brothers are gained instead of enemies.
    I believe this to be the wisdom that was being imparted to us in Ephesians 4:15
    Instead, speaking the truth in love,(A) we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head,(B) that is, Christ. ?

    • Thank you, Laura, for your kind words and timeless support over the years. It’s always a pleasure to read from your feedback.

      Yes, effective communication is important, do is speaking politely. No one wants to have anyone run them simply because they have something to say. Words have more meaning when they are said with love and and respect. ?❤
