The new episode of Flaws Are The New Black is about the importance of Keeping Your Voice and was inspired by an “ah ha!” moment I had while speed walking and trying desperately to lose five pounds. (Oy vey!)
What do I mean by keeping your voice?
I mean speaking up for yourself. Setting boundaries and sticking to them. Listening to your gut. Not speaking up, not having boundaries, and not listening to what our guts are telling us is unwise at best and dangerous at worst. I was pretty hugely flawed in this area and have been known to “go along to get along,” not share my opinion and not stick up for myself even though my gut was screaming at me to do so.
Don’t be like (the old) me.
Know your value. Hold fast to your boundaries. Keep and USE Your Voice.
Thank you so much for speaking about this. My Mom lived this way for her entire life until alzheimer’s freed her. By then it was too late to enjoy life. We wish you the best that life has to offer. c and Lee
