There are some situations in life where people feel the loneliest; after departing of a loved one, entering a new era of life, and giving out an opposing opinion settled deeply in society. Yes, voicing out your idea can be scary, probably more than jumping off a cliff or going deep under the sea. It can make relationships take a turn for the worst. It can ruin decades of hard work put in a job. But even when it can cause all this destruction, it is better to speak out than staying silent.
Keeping things bottled up inside can fill you with anger and vengeance and create low self-esteem and insecurity. And even when you try to make your voice heard after being silent for a long time, you won’t be given that attention. People will start thinking of you as weak and unimportant. So here are three essential reasons that’ll change your life if you begin to voice out more:
One sentence of opinion from you may not feel like much to you and others, but it can help you open up considerations and bring revolution even if petty. Your idea may not be influential at the moment to change things, but it may be the start of something. If you aren’t comfortable with public speeches you could take a John Doe approach. The matter you bring to light can benefit your workplace or the world, one day; it will get recognition and help others voice out too.
Learn and Improve
Voicing out opinions can be thought of as a foolish and unneeded aspect of a place in this world, but even if it is unimportant, it can teach you quite a lot. Opinions are good to have and give out, but it will not always be the right outlook for the right time. Or the thought is critical but could’ve been said at a favorable time for the other person. So you will be let down for voicing it out, yet still, you will be able to learn from it and provide your views better from there on, not to mention the confidence it will provide.
People will tell you that providing a voice to your thoughts can make you regret later due to the consequences. However, not speaking up at the right time can make you regret your whole life and make you miss a once in a lifetime opportunity. You never know what change you can bring with your thoughts and beliefs. You just need to let them out and see for yourself as things change gradually for the better, as the world isn’t as ruthless as we perceive.
