Everyday Inspiration, Day Five: Hook ‘Em With a Quote
Day Five: Hook ‘Em With a Quote
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.____ Bernard M. Baruch
I chose Bernard M. Baruch’s quote, it makes me feel, there is someone out there who inspires me to speak my mind.
My mom always told me I was too outspoken. I tried to convince her, I don’t like to pretend who I’m not.
Her words of wisdom was: ‘people will dislike you, they’ll ostracize you.’
When my mom was trying to change me, I wasn’t aware then that there was someone who wanted us to say what we feel. I did face criticism for speaking my mind, some gave me a weird look, but there were others who liked the way I am because I did not pretend.
Thank you for this post. We do indeed need to make sure that our voice is appropriately present in the world.
All good wishes,
I wholeheartedly agree with your comment. 🙂
Wonderful quote and I’m glad to read about your story.
