Never hold back on something you want to say to someone.
I know it is the opposite of what you’ve always been told right. Don’t rock the boat, always leave with your head held high, never say something to upset another. Do you really think that is what they think about all the time?
I have over the years done these things and have learned that without reservation the best outcome has always been to speak your mind and be you. Of course not everyone will understand and you will be told you are outspoken and overbearing at times but that just means ‘don’t be my friend then’, ‘ go your way and I’ll go mine’, whatever comes my way comes my way it really needed to be said.
So don’t hold back if you have something to say. No more reservations.
Be who you are.
