I am sure many of you have felt the way I am feeling right now. I am sure you have been frustrated from it, annoyed by, and sometimes you feel as if you should just give up and think “What is the point?” I am speaking about letting your voice be heard.
There are many instances where I have simply offered my voice to help encourage faith, when doubt has presented itself. I have also offered musing advice for those feeling stuck in a creative block. My voice has been there to sound off words of love and support to those who simply needed it. I have given freely, ideas from the heart so that it may benefit others in a better and positive way. However time, after time, after time I am not heard. When I am only trying to help.
It’s very very frustrating and sometimes heart wrenching at times when your voice is ignored, not listened to, and shushed because in their eyes your words are thought of as not being worthy, important, or just plain dumb.Vaguely, you begin to think, should I even speak anymore? Should I even offer my voice to you? Does it matter if it is family, friend, or foe? I have experience this pain on both ends.
I have expressed to many, to not let the negativity, or bad experiences taint your heart’s intent. Although lately, I have let these feelings effect my own. I have always advised to never let anyone remove your light, and your voice, speak freely. Though now, I don’t really want to anymore.Then again…if I do then I have truly let “them” take my voice and “they,” have won.
So even as I write this note, I am remembering my personal mission. It aligns with me both professionally and spiritually. If I let my voice be silenced then I will forgo my purpose and that not an option. So instead I think I will no longer offer my voice freely. Instead I will just offer it to those who ingenuously want to hear it.
