If you avoid conflict to keep the peace you start a war inside yourself.
Before you silence yourself to keep the peace, ask yourself, “What is the worst thing that can happen if I use my voice?”
Usually, the answer is they won’t like you. That’s it.
But the truth is, if you silence yourself for this reason, they already don’t like YOU. They only like a fictional version of you.
Be yourself and speak your truth.
You not only have the right to stand up for yourself, you have the responsibility.
