We All Need To Speak Up


People can't hear what you don't say

People can’t hear what you don’t say

“I can’t hear what you’re not saying” ~ C.Nordyke

We all have those friends that say what is on their mind.  We often wonder is it necessary to always say out loud what you are thinking.  Recently my daughter was having some issues with her roommate.  My daughter and I have the same attitude.  Treat others as you want to be treated and then we take if further into as we expect to be treated.

Then when others aren’t treating us that way we feel frustrated, hurt or angry.  So I think it is necessary in a respectful way to vocalize how you feel.  If something bothers you be okay with stating that.  Don’t feel the need to brush it off.  More than likely your friends won’t do that if you do or say something wrong.

I believe most of us want to connect, to get along.  However, some of us are more predisposed to speak up than others. Next time you have something to say find a respectful way to be heard. Communication should be one of the core classes in schools.

  4. You will always get frustrated if you do things with a fixed end result. If you do not get what you expected you will always think you are a failure. Always try to be positive and flexible. And when something happens, do not spend a lot of time on why but what next. Learn from the past please.
