Say something…

Why is it that our brains second guess our thoughts, why does it mix doubts into our intentions causing our jaws to go into lockdown mode when we gather the courage to speak up…to say something?

Whether we are wanting to right a wrong…

Whether we are wanting to stomp out critics and bullies…

Whether we are wanting to speak up about a cause…

Whether we are wanting to defend a friend, family member or ourselves…

Or, whether we are wanting to confess our feelings for someone…or wanting to end the current relationship we’re in…

Speaking up…saying something is one of the most difficult aspects in life. Time is spent thinking of what we want to say to whom we want to say it to. Time is spent articulating our words as perfectly as possible and every time we play it out in our minds, our courage is morphing those words into actions, until…

Until that very last second hits, that’s when chaos breaks loose in our brains. Every doubt creeps from out of the cracks and haults the brakes causing a chain reaction of second guesses. So, more times than not what do we do.. ?

We remain on the sidelines trying to convince ourselves that saying something will only cause more bad than good.

Saying something won’t make those critics and bullies realize that their words and actions are damaging…

Saying something won’t shine more light on a certain cause, it won’t aid in hopefully ending these stifling stigmas…

Saying something to the person we have feelings for, no good will come from that because of whatever excuses we’ve conjured up…

Saying something won’t change anything…

Right…?

We waste so much time living in the “shoulda, coulda, woulda” spectrum and because of that we miss out on so many opportunities. Opportunities that could have altered our lives for the better, altered our world for the better, altered us for the better.

One chance…one risk…saying something…

The best advice I was ever given was this, “the dumbest thing you could ever say is the one thing you never say…”

If you can’t get it out of your mind, then there’s a reason for that.

Say something…
