I was taught growing up to say ‘yes’ more. To agree. To listen. To cooperate. I believe those qualities made me into a very empathetic designer and artist. What I hoped someone would have also told me is to while doing those things… To speak the truth.
To speak the truth once.
To speak the truth twice.
To speak the truth for as long as I can speak.
And sometimes to do that requires being louder.
And louder is not aggressive or angry.
It’s just a louder voice speaking the truth.
