I read a comic today – here – that shows privilege and how it can affect life. I personally appreciated it on many levels.
I feel this on a number of levels. Because when I’m quiet people assume I have nothing to say. Nope. Not the truth. Often at my quietest, I’m trying to sort how how I can say what I want to say and get the receiver to actually hear what I have to say. I often have a lot to say – I just know that if, said wrong, it can lead to bigger problems than just staying silent.
So very VERY true! Once it gets in your head, you are screwed. You cannot always silence what gets in there.
