“It’s so loud Inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can’t take back the words I never said”
Thank you Lupe Fiasco for the song “Never Said” because it hit home this morning. As I’m listening to an old CD driving today, this song plays and reminded me how important it is to say the things you want to.
I’ve never been afraid to be honest. I am very blunt, and brutally honest. Some people may consider my honesty as being rude, but it’s never meant to be, I’ve just been created to speak my mind. For the most part I do say what’s on my mind. I share my emotions, opinions, and frustrations. I think it’s important for my sanity to stay true to not hiding what I am thinking.
There are times when I can tell I’m slipping away from who I am, because I stop speaking my mind. Granted there are times when and when not to speak your mind, but I filter for the most part, not always. Anyway, the times I do start to slip are when I don’t feel confident in myself, whether it be from someone else making me feel inferior, or just the stresses of everyday life.
So just some inspirational words for you to think about tonight are this: NEVER be afraid to speak your mind. Someone else has NO right to limit how you express yourself through words. Always embrace opportunities to compliment others and use discretion with a bold opinion. Life is too short to keep what you are feeling and thinking inside.
stay beautiful! xoxo
