Say What You Have to Say!

Last Update: May 17, 2022

Quote of the Day:

“Don't try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say.” Barbara Kingsolver

Meaning Of the Quote:

Say what you mean and mean what you say and forget about what others want you to say.

Discussion of the Quote:

It is not your job to figure out what others want you to say. You need to focus on what you have to say and say it. Always speak your truth. It is your voice and your life. Therefore, you should speak on your behalf. Indeed, sometimes you have to speak for others because they have not found their own voices. Also, sometimes others may have to speak on your behalf. But at the end of the day, you have to find your voice and decide what you really want to say and just say it no matter what.

Furthermore, some people may not like what you have to say for yourself. However, that is their issue, not yours, if they don’t want to hear what you have to say. Don’t let anyone put words in your mouth. Speak for yourself and don’t let anyone tell you what you ought to say. Absolutely, sometimes you may ask for the guidance of others on some matters but in the end, you should figure out what you have to say.

Final Thoughts:

Give people what you have to offer; your truth. It should be the only thing that you have to offer. Say what you have to say and don’t worry about what others want to hear from you. “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time." John Lydgate. So be happy and pleased with what you have to say for yourself.

I appreciate your time, comments and likes.

To our success

Kind regards,

Nichola
