Lately, I’ve been thinking about all the ways we tone down those issues that matter deeply to us. We speak out about our experiences and we’re told we’re too much. We advocate for other people and we’re told it’s not our place. So, eventually, we just stop saying it out loud. We retreat back to the comfortable discomfort of how things used to be, and life feels a little jagged, our spirit a little busted, our soul a little bruised.
Let’s stop keeping our stories to ourselves.
