    "Speak the Truth In Love"

    It's not what you say, but how you say it. I know people have said that a hundred times but it really is true. People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. Even strangers like here  on the net

    Speak Up

    i've never been completely hesitant to speak my mind, but over the past few years i've become even better about it. i used to be more reluctant, but once i started i was able to see that it feels good to say what's on your mind. bottom line, i have reasons for thinking the way i...

    I'm Such a Chicken

    I wish that I could tell people what I really thought/felt without having that sick feeling of being bashed or made to feel stupid/ignorant. I don't have a college education, I don't know big fancy words. Honestly, I know very little about a lot (if that makes sense). Maybe I'm...

    Speaking My Mind Has Never Worked For Me.

    As far as I know, and have been told by others, and aim to be, I am a kind, friendly, tolerant, open minded person.I never go out of my way to make people feel bad, or tell the cold hard truth if it isn't asked for.I hate hurting people, and love standing up for those who need it...

    Speaking Without Being Put Down

    I have always had issues with speaking my mind. It took me long enough to figure out why I am that way. Growing up I was always told I was stupid so I guess I felt that anything and everything I did was stupid. I'm still a little on the shy side when it comes to saying what is on...

    Ok this seriously bothers me.

    My parents are straight up you shouldn't swear people. But here's the thing they both swear and they don't get all holier than thou on my two older brothers. Their reasoning? "It's not proper for a 'young lady'". I'm 20 years old and I'm nor allowed to say ****? Damn...
