Speaking up respectfully requires us to be clear and direct with our intentions and message, and to accept the consequences of offering it—meaning, understanding that we can only control what we say, not how it is received. The critical thoughts with a constructive intention served a valid purpose, whether it was to help me maintain my boundariescommunicate my needs, or honor my values.
And sometimes, it may also pertain to taking care of people we love, by speaking up when we see someone mistreating them.
The next step is to foster self-awareness about what it is you need, or want to express. Owning your opinion or directly expressing your needs opens you up to a potential confrontation. And communicating your feelings is integral to addressing them.
But I know one thing for sure: Every time I am clear and respectful about what I feel, I feel proud of myself for having the courage to own that. And every time I resolve an issue that might grow if left unaddressed, my relationships feel stronger.
