For some of us, speaking our mind comes quite naturally.
Actually, it comes way too naturally for some of us- if we are honest.
I know this to be true, because I am one of those people. I mean, it certainly depends on the situation or scenario, but I think very quickly, process very quickly in a moment, and sometimes forget to breathe when another person says something that is out of line, or perhaps something I just don’t like or agree with.
This definitely comes with its weaknesses, and it is something I have to really think about at times, but it certainly has its strengths, too.
An acquaintance posted this on Facebook today and it really caught my attention:
When you love someone and bite your tongue, all you get is a mouthful of blood.
This is so true. It doesn’t do anyone any good to avoid speaking up about things….
