When you start speaking out for yourself… self-validating… you will be met with surprise. I knew when I started being honest about who I was and what I believed and didn’t believe, I knew full well what the consequences were going to be.
I was going to be left out in the cold.
But it came at the perfect point when I was finally willing to pay the price. There does come a time when you realize that if you don’t advocate for yourself, you will consign yourself to a lifetime of regret and sorrow.
Better to experience occasional loneliness than be estranged from yourself!
