Saying What You Mean
“Life is too short to be little. Man is never so manly as when he feels deeply, acts boldly, and expresses himself with frankness and with fervor.”
Methinks life is too short to walk through it tiptoeing. There are people and events which must be endured, but most of what we do is by raw choice only. Job is bad? Change it. Mate is bad? Change or leave it. Too fat? Take one less bite of the cake.
But by all means stop blaming the world for your ills, unless you are trapped in dire poverty not of your own making with goose stepping soldiers outside your door.
Otherwise, speak up to those who wish to control you. If you know what you stand for, you will stop falling. Your voice and actions will be aligned with your absolute best interests. And your best interests are for the best.
Speak with conviction and truth.
