Unapologetically Saying What You Mean

There's something be be said about saying what's on your mind. Now, I'm not saying I'm one of those people. No, I'm the opposite. I will hold on to my opinion about most serious things until I am ready to explode. Most of the time, that's exactly how I end up saying what's on my mind. When it's the least appropriate, most intense, absolute wrong time.   

You see, I'm a pleaser. I want to take care of people. I want people to like me. To do that, I am agreeable. But at what cost? When does being compliant with everything stop helping things and others and begin compromising my own self?  When I do say what I feel, even at the most inopportune time, I feel better. Relieved and my accomplishment of speaking my words. Then, ultimately, I feel bad. Bad because I kept it in for so long and let it out in such an intimate, unrelenting way.   

Step one in this self discover thing, for me, is saying what I feel when I feel it. Unapologetically saying my words and owning them. Because they are mine and they are worth it. I am worth it.
