Clarity will give you Guidance
Your Silence Will Not Protect You - Audre Lorde
There is power in your story. Your Power
Your story may irritate some, piss some off, make others uncomfortable, people will call you names like emotional, high strung, opinionated, arrogant, even bitchy.
So what's the alternative?
Change to suit each name?
Nah. For what?
Because the world will not end if people call you names
The way you tell your story may free you, it may free others
it may alter your world - inside and outside
it will bring you wings, it will bring you clarity
And clarity will keep you open to what life wants to give you
Life usually has something better in store than you've "listed"
Clarity will give you the guidance when to speak up and when to shut up
When to share your story
