You won't remember when you were born, but you have heard enough stories and maybe even seen a few births to know the answer to this question.
What is one of the first things that a newborn baby does at birth?
Speak their mind.
Babies have no problem what so ever announcing their needs, or telling us how they feel. So, how is it that when we grow up and face the world more independently that we stay so quiet about our needs and how we feel?
Even though parents, siblings, teachers and mentors do their best to raise us to be a fundamental and functional part of society, there is a major set back. We learn to not speak our mind.
“Raise your hand”
“Don’t speak until I am done”
“Children should be seen and not heard”
“Watch your tongue young lady”
Again, everyone did their best with what they had and what they knew, but the end result is being an adult with a fear a speaking of what is on our mind.
In fact, some people have such an incredible fear of saying what they are thinking or feeling, that it can easily become debilitating or dysfunctional. Leading to a long list of emotionally related issues that only start with the need to be heard.
How are you ever going to get what you want if you don’t speak your mind?
Whether we are looking for a raise, a favor, or even an ear to share our sorrow with, we cannot have any of it if we don’t find a way to ask. We are told to listen carefully and figure out what someone is trying to say. Great idea! Love it! But I believe the ownership has to fall on the person who is speaking.
We don’t have to be overbearing, just heard.
Just say it! Get it out!
You never know, you might get exactly what you need.
