Don’t let others tie your mouth shut. You have just as much right to share your views and opinions as they do. But remember, your view is only one of many. If you want to be respected for your thoughts; you need to allow others to speak their minds and respect their views in return. There’s room for all perspectives.
Expressing your own creativity and communicating your own thoughts is an important part of who you are. Don’t allow others to cause you to become angry and cut yourself off from the world or those around you. There are many who are interested in what you have to offer and would enjoy a conversation with you.
Maintain control of your emotions, don’t let hurt feelings dictate the control others have over you and walk your talk as an example of who you are. When you share your views and talent with calm love and compassion; the one who looks like a fool are those who want to keep you quiet and put you down. Win the game by protecting your ego and being who you really are. Walk Your Talk!
