The importance of each of us having our voice heard

Having an opinion is a bigger personal milestone than it may seem. Voicing opinions makes you vulnerable, especially if you’re battling to build self-confidence.

It may seem easier to regurgitate popular ideas and play to the mass appeal, but there is something to be said for developing your own convictions and sticking to them. Whether you’re afraid to speak out about your political stances or personal preferences, comfortably and kindly speaking your mind can give you an incredible sense of inner peace and strength. While it seems scary to make a firm statement opposing popular perspective, it is one of the most liberating things you can accomplish.
